S: I think you have both made many excellent comments and as usual, Tep
added some very helpful textual quotes.
I think that no matter how the defilements (kilesa) are listed or
categorised, they refer to the same lobha, dosa and moha. As Tep writes
here, 'when any hindrance arises there also arises ignorance'. We know
that ignorance always accompanies any akusala of any kind. It is blind at
that moment to the harm of akusala. It also accompanies moments of ditthi
(wrong view). Moha is ignorant at that moment of the truth and ditthi has
wrong view about it.
Thanks again for your detailed input which I plan to print out and read
more carefully later.
It's good to see you around again, Tep, with your helpful sutta quotes and
Han, I'm glad you have a copy of 'Survey' and I'm sure everyone here will
be interested to hear about your discussions with A.Sujin on Saturday. I
know she'll be very glad to meet you too.
