- greed (lobha, which actually means craving, desire, liking, or preferring and is NOT limited to selfish voraciousness as some people reading Buddhism only in English come to conclude),
- hatred (dosa, which means all forms of aversion, especially wrath and fear, which we don't normally take to have the same root), and the biggest problem of all, which serves as the root of the other two,
- delusion (moha, wrong view, unknowing, confusion, doubt, uncertainty, ignorance).
- For definitions of these six roots, see mūla.
