THE THREE POISONS

FEBRUARY 6TH & 13TH

In the Buddhist teachings, the three poisons (ignorance, attachment, and aversion) are the primary causes that keep sentient beings trapped in samsara. These three poisons are said to be the root of all suffering. The three poisons are represented in the hub of the wheel of life as a pig, a bird, and a snake (representing ignorance, attachment, and aversion, respectfully).

The three poisons lead to the creation of karma, which leads to rebirth in the realm of samsara.

For two Sunday’s in February, we will explore the appearance of these poisons in our everyday lives and contemplate and discuss them together.

The five aggregates are comprised of one physical factor (matter) and four mental factors (consciousness, perception, feeling and volition). . When we identify or cling to them suffering arises.
