Greed, aversion, delusion destroy
the self-same person of evil mind
from whom they are born,
like the fruiting
of the bamboo. The Buddha (Itivuttaka 50)

  • Greed: gluttony, hunger, longing, craving, selfishness
  • Aversion: loathing, abhorrence, animosity, revulsion, hatred, antipathy
  • Delusion: illusion, hallucination, fallacy, mirage, mistake

Buddhist scripture uses the word delusion to mean ‘not seeing things they way they are’, especially in regards to their empty nature.
