zhe sdang - aversion

From mi 'ong in the mind zhe sdang will form - aversion, such as hatred, aggression, and so on. If you feel dislike for an object, then this is the certain outcome.

zhe sdang and the earlier mentioned 'dod chags are two of the so called three poisons, or dug gsum, that are frequently used in the literature as the term for these three cases. The third one is gti mug, ignorance, in Sanskrit moha. It's actually the worst of the three, as this will ensure the two other ones. Ignorance in Buddhism is really not knowing how the mind and things work, and by ignorance causing suffering to oneself and others.
