(Tibetan nyon mongs) "An affliction is defined as a phenomenon that, when it arises, is disturbing in character and that, through arising, disturbs the mind-stream." (Asanga, Compendium of Knowledge) In Buddhist philosophy, ten general forms of afflictions are described: attachment, hostility, pride, ignorance, doubt, seeing the false I's as real, seeing the false I's as lasting or wrongly believing self to end with death, beliefs in wrong views, beliefs that certain behaviors lead to liberation (i.e. mechanically), and wrong views in general.
