Definitions

In the Khenjuk, Mipham Rinpoche says:

  • Tib. ཁྲེལ་མེད་པ་ནི་གཞན་རྒྱུ་མཚན་དུ་བྱས་ཏེ་མི་དགེ་བའི་ཕྱོགས་ལ་འཛེམ་པ་མེད་པར་འཇུག་པ་དུག་གསུམ་གྱི་ཆར་གཏོགས་པ། ཉོན་མོངས་ཀུན་གྱི་གྲོགས་བྱེད་པའོ།
  • Disregard means to engage in unwholesome actions without inhibition on account of others. It belongs to the categories of the three poisons and assists all the destructive emotions. (Rigpa Translations)
  • Shamelessness means to personally engage in what is unvirtuous without inhibition on account of others. It belongs to the categories of the three poisons and helps all the disturbing emotions.(Erik Pema Kunsang)
