Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Chapter 3 of Aryadeva’s Four Hundred Stanzas on the Middle Way focuses on overcoming the distortion of seeing the impure and foul body as pure and clean.

  • Refuting the belief that the body is clean and an appropriate object of desire
  • Why there is resistance to hearing how the body is a bag of filth and impure
  • Seeing the body as beautiful and the most wonderful thing leads to destructive actions just to get a morsel of sexual pleasure
