The 7 Latent Tendencies



The 7 Latent Tendencies (Anusaya):


1: The Latent Tendency to Sense-Desire.
2: The Latent Tendency to Aversion & Anger.
3: The Latent Tendency to Skeptical Doubt.
4: The Latent Tendency to Speculative Views.
5: The Latent Tendency to the Conceit that: "I am".
6: The Latent Tendency to Craving for Becoming.
7: The Latent Tendency to Blind Ignorance.

These are inherently deeply imbedded and hidden in the core of the mind,
where these subtle tendencies ever again exert their harmful influence
over our thoughts, speech & behaviour. Biased by such corrupt inclinations,
any intention to act will only produce detrimental and painful future results...
The only tool capable of overcoming and extracting them is indeed this quite
Noble 8-fold Way: The Ariya Atthangika Magga:

1. Right View (sammā-ditthi)
2. Right Motivation (sammā-sankappa)
3. Right Speech (sammā-vācā)
4. Right Action (sammā-kammanta)
5. Right Livelihood (sammā-ājīva)
6. Right Effort (sammā-vāyāma)
7. Right Awareness (sammā-sati)
8. Right Concentration (sammā-samādhi)


The Latent Tendencies are the Hidden Driver of Mind!
Local minima are Samsara.
Global minimum is Nibbāna!

The Latent Tendencies are like mental Strange Attractors!
These confine the mind into habitual cyclical behaviour...
