Setting Aside Aversion And Ill-Will

by Peter Carlson on April 30, 2014

This dialogue follows on the previous one, which focused on the nature and function of aversion and ill-will.  This week the focus is on how to recognize and interrupt the development of this hindrance.  During the discussion, the experience of aversion was explored to increase process awareness as to the first signs of the aversion, how it actually manifests, how to set it aside, and how to minimize its re-occurance.  Peter also talked of the importance of setting aside the hindrances in order to cultivate mental clarity and stability, and then to revisit the hindrances to realize the essential nature of experience, as impermanent, non-self, and subject to the suffering that arises from craving and clinging.
