Feb 23, 2022 - The Relationship Between the Hindrances and the Five Faculties

The spiritual faculties are one type of activity of mind, connected to wisdom, the heart-mind or citta, with its capacity for awakening. But we have another activity of mind: our ordinary mind, which is much more impulsive and reactive. This is what we know of as the hindrances, the activity of the wanting mind that grasps after what it wants and pushes away what it doesn’t want. We move between these activities, these capacities of the heart-mind. Sometimes we are in the ordinary, impulsive mind and sometimes we are in the more intuitive wisdom mind.
