Conduct to be avoided when listening to the teachings includes the six stains (Tib. དྲི་མ་དྲུག་) :

The six stains are mentioned in Vasubandhu’s Well Explained Reasoning:

Arrogance, lack of faith,

Lack of any interest,

Outward distraction, inward tension,

And discouragement are the six stains. .[1].
