four torrential flows (catur-yogha, 四暴流). One’s afflictions that can wash away one’s goodness. They are also called the four yokes (catur-yoga, 四軛) because sentient beings live under these yokes. They are
(1) twenty-nine afflictions in the desire realm;
(2) twenty-eight afflictions, such as greed, arrogance, and doubt, in the form realm and the formless realm;
(3) thirty-six wrong views, such as permanence or impermanence of the world, existence or nonexistence of a Tathāgata after His parinirvāṇa, etc., in the Three Realms of Existence;
(4) ignorance of the truth, of which there are five kinds in each of the three realms, totaling fifteen.
They total 108 afflictions (Buddha’s Light Dictionary 1988, 1831)
