five delusive inclinations

(五鈍使) (Jpn go-donshi )

Greed, anger, foolishness, arrogance, and doubt. According to The Dharma Analysis Treasury, the five delusive inclinations constitute the most fundamental of illusions or earthly desires. Dharmapala (530-561), an Indian scholar of the Consciousness-Only doctrine, defined the five delusive inclinations and the five false views together as the ten fundamental earthly desires, and T'ient'ai (538-597) included them among the illusions of thought and desire, which constitute the first of the three categories of illusion.
