Back to Intelligence & Ignorance
Mental Postures that Bind #139
In tandem with dharma chart #187, which teaches about positive mental postures that the practitioner can attempt to attain and develop, this wisdom chart cautions the seeker as to detrimental positions of the mind that it may still be holding, even habitually, even to the slightest degree. Shown here are several of the common harmful perspectives which living beings allow to occupy their minds and thoughts, most of them having to do with attachment to matter and worldliness. Rebirth in ignorance, over cycles of time, is the reward for such crass and limited thinking, and the suffering that invariably accompanies it.
