The Five Nivaranas: Buddha's Teaching of the FIVE HINDRANCES (Basic Buddhism) (Paperback)
Buddha identified Five Nivaranas (Hindrances or Blockages) which prevent us from seeing the Truth and putting an end to Suffering. One or more of these obstacles is present at every stage of the Path until the ultimate attainment of the Arahant - the Deathless. These Hindrances affect the senses. The senses are the fundamentals of Life itself.
