TitleCorner the kilesas by making them afraid

Content / Description

Pain investigation: wanting the pain to go away is like putting oil on the fire. When we feel lonely, we call our friends, turn on the TV, but loneliness comes because we are separated from our true nature. Kilesas always put you down - like hooligans. Kilesas are really afraid of death and to loose their power over us. No magic in the Lord Buddha's teaching, everything is explainable, reasonable, even the other realms and the supernatural powers. We are afraid of hell because we have all been there so many times. We find kamma merciless but it is just a law. Having a good spiritual friend that shows you the right path is very important and hard to find.
