This talk continues a reviewing of the 52 cetasikas, conditioning factors of the mind; the focus of this talk is on four of the occasional or particular cetasikas, which only appear when circumstances permit. They are: aversion/ill-will, envy/jealousy, stinginess/hoarding and regret/worry. The characteristics of each of these mind conditioning categories is reviewed along with suggestions for countering their impact. The descriptions of these cetasikas is followed by discussion among those attending.
