Three causes of disturbing emotions given in the Abhidharma are:

  1. not having abandoned the latent tendencies or predispositions (nyon mongs pa’i bag la nyal ma spang),
  2. coming into contact with a provocative object (nyon mongs skye ba’i yul nye bar gnas pa), and
  3. incorrect thinking/unhelpful attitude (tshul zhin ma yin pa yid la byed pa)
