Meditation for PeaceA Mind Free Of Particles Of Defilements.Raga: Is a Small disaster but is slow to relieve.A particle means fine dust, which is so small that eyes could hardly see it. It could only be seen when sticking to something clean like a looking glass. In small quantities of particles, we still could not see them. It is only when brightness destroys them can we see them.A mind with particles is a mind penetrated with fine defilements that vring the mind into grief, less brightness, less sparkle, less glitter, and bereft of efficiency in thinking, as in the case of a mind that thinks slowly and negatively.A mind without any particles is a mind free of all defilements both rough and fine, making us fresh, bright and ready to work (the duty of mind is thinking), all of which are the mind of an Aradant.Particles of Defilements in one’s mind are:Raga – Lust or Passion (grasping).Dosa – Ill Will or Hatred (anger).Moha – Delusion or lgnorance (stupidity).Raga is lust or sexual passion, which is a fine defilement that adheres to our mind deeply.There are five sensual pleasures; namely: form, taste, scent, sound, and touch.These kinds of defilements are not sin or evil to ordinary people.But without being controlled of mind, they will roughly propel themselves more deeply into this state, and commit more unwholesome acts because of this lust.Dosa is ill will or malevolence that could lead us to cause harm to ones who make us angry.Our mind would brim with thinking to scold, or thinking to kill, thinking to kick, thinking to set a house on fire and thinking to make others ashamed etc.Mohe is delusion. This is a state of mind that is filled with dullness, with no thoughts of responsibility for bad or good actions, and knowing nothing about merit and evil.These particles exist according to worldly knowledge (which we don’t know) that is not delusion.Eve though there are those who have accumulated abundant knowledge and efficiency in technology but know nothing about wholesome and unwholesome actions and disaster, are regarded as those who are in a state of delusion of ignorance.The differences between Raga, Dosa and moha are the following:Raga: Is a Small disaster but is slow to relieve.Dosa: Is a Big disaster but is quick to relieve.Moha: Is a Big disaster and is difficult to relieve.
