Seven types of attachment
The seven types of attachment (Tib. ཆགས་པ་རྣམ་པ་བདུན་, chakpa nampa dün, Wyl. chags pa rnam pa bdun) are:
- attachment to objects, beginning with material possession and extending to wrong views;
- expectation of recompense;
- expectation of karmic result;
- dormant opposing factors (from avarice to distorted understanding); and
- distraction through interest in the Hinayana and belief in the true existence of object, subject, and action.
