【Intent of liberation】– Arising of Afflictions
Because all the sentient beings of the three realms are bound to conditionality, bound to conditionality, and with conditionality, dysfunctional tendencies that are in harmony with the class of afflictions will arise, afflictions will arise. In summary, the sequence goes like this: from generating, to sustaining, and increasing the afflictions. What follows birth? There it comes, the manifestation of affliction, the seed of afflictions exerts its effects, and distracts you from focusing on the virtuous, you just can’t avoid (its influence). “Furthermore, you cannot control them as you would wish” – What you desire, sorry, it cannot be fulfilled. You want happiness, but it just wouldn’t allow you to have it. Even for a small pleasure, you just had a fill of good food, but shortly after, a-ya! Your stomach became uncomfortably bloated, you then have to use the bathroom. Despite that eating brings you plenty of “satisfaction”, it requires much hassle such as washing, shopping, and preparation. Let alone other things. Therefore, this generating (of afflictions)/birth is full of flaws!
