Today we are going to learn about the defilements. Another word for defilements could be impurities. So when we eat food, we don’t like it to have any impurities in it do we? Things like chemicals, or dirt, or stones. So we could say that those things are defilements of the food. They are things that make the food difficult to eat and could even hurt us. In the same way, the Supreme Buddha taught that the mind can have defilements. And when there are defilements or impurities in the mind, we can hurt our selves and other people around us. We’ll learn about the three big defilements we have in our mind: greed hatred and delusion.
