Akushala-Mula — The 3 Unwholesome Roots in Buddhism #228
Zeroing in on a trio of particularly horrific negativities in the human mind, Buddhism draws attention to the cause of so much of the suffering that plagues human beings in the world. Certainly, all suffering cannot be removed, since it is the very nature of relative existence to host it. But the main causes for unnecessary suffering can and should be destroyed, and at its very roots as well. The fitting image on this chart will help convince living beings — awakened and unawakened alike — of the good sense and reason to do away with such unwholesome roots as soon as humanly possible.
