In Reply to: Anger... feeling or mental activity? posted by Veronica Ma on November 25, 1999 at 22:41:06:
: I have a question regarding anger. Is anger a feeling
: classified under Skandha 2 - Aggregate of Sensation, or
: is it a mental activity/volition classified under
: Skandha 4 - Aggregate of Mental Formations?
Let me illustrate:
Anger is 1 of 6 Root affliction which is among 51
Mental Factors, which are secondary consciuonesses.
The last is classed under Thing.
So : Thing--> 2ndary consciousness -->
51 Mental Factors -->6 Root Afflictions
You can get this information from Meditation On
Emptiness by Jeffrey Hopkins and other similar books
NOTE : this type of teachings are only taught by
Mahayana and Tibetan Buddhism schools.
Yours in the Dharma,
