A beautiful simple text,by B.S,that we shall share together.
There are these Five Minor Mental Chains (Samyojana):The Blessed Buddha once emphasized: Bhikkhus, there are these five Lower mental chains. What five?1: The mental chain of belief in 'my same identity' (sakkāya-ditthi)2: The mental chain of sceptical doubt (vicikicchā)3: The mental chain of clinging to rule & ritual (sīlabbata-parāmāsa)4: The mental chain of lust for sensuality (kāma-rāga)5: The mental chain of anger and ill will (vyāpāda) There exist these 5 Lower mental chains! The Noble 8-fold Way should be developed for the direct experience of these five minor mental chains, for the full understanding and elimination of them, and for their final overcoming, destruction and full abandonment! This Noble 8-fold Way is developed for the breaking asunder all of these five minor mental chains!
For those who might not know what a Bhikkhu is, it is the same as a monk but with higher knowledge of the Dharma(Buddha's teachings)
