【Mind Intent on Liberation】 - The five appropriated aggregates that bound us
If regarding this problem, in other words, for the nature of the five appropriated aggregates, you absolutely do not comprehend it. The nature of it is suffering, but you do not recognize it as suffering. And because of not recognizing that it is suffering, we will instinctively feel that this is what I feel really happy about! We will want nutrition, want to grow fat, want to be plump, and wish for comfort. Under this circumstance, all sorts of problems will ensue. Of course then, how can one develop a genuine sense of disenchantment [with cyclic existence]? Now that we have understood the texts earlier, so what is liberation? It is to be free from the bondage. What binds you? Afflictions and karma. What is bound by afflictions and karma? They bind our five appropriated aggregates together. Hence, you must develop a great disgust for the five appropriated aggregates and an intent of liberation. That is when you will go further to look for the cause and on of why we are bound and etc. The root to the entire cultivation of the teaching begins from here.
