Discussion

Characterized by Mikyo Dorje as obscurations which primarily obscure the attainment of liberation. These are the obscurations which the practitioner of the Foundation Vehicle discards entirely and without exception in order to attain arhatship. The Bodhisattva also discards these obscurations gradually over the course of the paths of seeing and meditation.

Afflictive obscurations include greed, hatred, afflicted ignorance, pride and views, etc.
