இ Three Poisons/Three Evil Roots

Sorry folks still harping on the threesome, trilogy or naughty 3some seems cannot get over with it. Greed, anger and ignorance are called the Three Poisons or Three Evil Roots, which are the primary source of all evil deeds. It is the Three Poisons that create all bad Karma, resulting all kinds of suffering in accordance with the Principle of Cause and Effect. What is GREED?

Definition of Greed: is an excessive desire to possess wealth or goods; Greed (Latin, avaritia), also known as avarice or covetousness, is, like lust and gluttony, a sin of excess. Greed is inappropriate expectation. However, greed is applied to a very excessive or rapacious desire and pursuit of wealth, status, and power ... wikipedia.

There is to an old Chinese saying 人心不足蛇吞象 [rén xīn bùzú shé tūn xiàng] literally means a man who is never content is like a snake trying to swallow an elephant. You be the judge after watching the video clip..



you simply cannot dig and dig for more, and more and much more..its against the universal law..

Life Ramblings said...

Greed must be curbed as it will destroy all of us.

Alice Law said...

LOL... he was innovative wasn't he?! I won't have so many ideals in such a split second!;)

Have a wonderful weekend!

Twilight said...

LMAO.. In Thailand, my relatives would say don't try to shit like an elephant instead..

Twilight said...

It's really big merits that you warn and share with bloggers about the Three Poisons! It is such a basic teaching that millions of humans failed to adhere, otherwise there would be no war at all.

HappySurfer said...

Psst... I meant that script at the beginning of the post. You don't see it on your browser? I see it on mine. It must be Twilight Zone indeed..

[SK] said...

hehehe, i thot you are going to write about 3some again.. so you are talking about some 3 elements that make up of some results??

[SK] said...

人心不足蛇吞象, yeah i actually like this phrase.. though a bit exaggerate that a snake can swallow an elephant (if not being stepped flat and killed), but it's really true to say in that sense..

Bananazஇ said...

Life Ramblings இ true! greed are the main cause of corruptions. tQ

Alice Law இ He was fast indeed but with evil thoughts..

Twilight இ the opposite would be shit like a rat instead of an elephant haha. It is even better not to take what is not given. tQ

Bananazஇ said...

HappySurfer இ t-w-i-l-i-g-h-t...is happening maybe frequency not sync yet haha. tQ

[SK] இ exactly! old Chinese idiom do have a strong point and sense in it. tQ

cleffairy said...

Very true... must be thankful and grateful... expect less... will be more content in life.

Kelvin said...

The ironic thing is, greediness is the main force of getting rich.

Bananazஇ said...

cleffairy இ its tough to abstain from taking things not given but its possible with mindful cultivation. tQ

Kelvin இ Getting rich the fast way will not actually last somehow it will vanish only a matter of time. tQ

Pete said...

Hazmat sign....he he he, back to engineering recently! LOL!

willie a.k.a reptoz said...

Uh! Too bad I couldn't watch the video. My celcom broadband is bad...

Anyway, i like the quote "like a snake trying to swallow an elephant". I think greed is inside almost everybody. A small act like, trying to get on the bus first, eating extra without leaving for other people and eating more than you can in a buffet dinner are also considered as greed.

But there is also a saying "A greedy man always benefit more" Hahaha! Bad or not?

Have a nice day! I think i want to eat banana after this.

Bananazஇ said...

Pete இ Hazmat! Cool!!! learned a new word today tQ.

willie a.k.a reptoz இ greedy man always benefit but normally short lived as you cannot beat the universal law haha. tQ

Ai Shiang said...

Such good illustration.

I learnt something new today. Next time I will use that phrase when someone is greedy :o)

Bananazஇ said...

Ai Shiang இ glad you pick up something useful here so gotta tell people don't 轟 the snake haha. tQ

RoseBelle said...

Karma is the best teacher, unfortunately, many of its students are far too ignorant to listen to its teachings.

Bananazஇ said...

RoseBelle இ Bananaz is a strict believe of karma always agree life is like a boomerang good or bad it comes back..tQ
