The Six Primary Delusions

The Six Primary Delusions (六大煩悩) consists of including “Three Poisons of Mind”:(greed, anger, foolishness),  doubt, proud, and evil view. In buddhism it is said that there are one hundred eight delusions in our mind. New year’s eve at temples monks hit the bell one hundred eight times throughout a mid night. That means we purify our those worldly desires throughout the night for preparing a new year with the pure heart. Kobonnou “子煩悩” children are among one hundred eight delusions that we have to get rid of. Actually bonnou (worldly delusion) is not be able to vanish due to some energy for our life. Only we can do is to control them not to be raged like a restive horse. We have to have a self-control and self-restraint not to ruin our life. Our body always gives us demands such as rest, eating, drinking, sleep so on. If we allow all of them, we lose our right life. Bonno is a demand from our body but our body is not our essential figure. That is an only vehicle or a boat. Our soul or spirit is a core or center of our life. That is a lord of our body. Our body is just a servant. So don’t be ruled by your body rather you need to control it.

Doubt

If you doubt too much especially doubt about existence of God, you will cause troubles in your life and life after death. We are all children of God. Our true parent is God. We should not doubt about that.

Proud

We can be proud yourself as a child of God. That is OK but too much proud is not good. Arrogant behavior is “proud”.

Evil view

Evil view is considered as you think there is only material world exist, no other world is accepted like an atheist. Those who don’t have faith are also categorized in evil view.
