Akusala The Nature of Poison

By Venerable Sayadaw Dr. Nandamalabhivamsa


An Abhidhamma approach to some aspects of unwholesomeness, Akusala: The Nature of Poison, are a series of talks given by Venerable U Nandamalabhivamsa in Naarden, Netherlands, Penang, Malaysia and Singapore from 2005  to 2007. 

Sayadaw says “The Lord Buddha always pointed out first the harmful: what should not be done. As in: “Not to do evil, to cultivate good”. The reason being not doing evil (akusala) is more important than not doing good (kusala). However “to cultivate good” goes together with “Not to do evil”. If we cultivate good non-greed (alobha) for instance — greed (lobha) is gone. We must try to find delight in good, though it would be like going upstream against the current.
