Tainted

From Chinese Buddhist Encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

Tainted (Skt. sāsrava; Tib. ཟག་བཅས་ zakché; Wyl. zag bcas) — all phenomena, with the exception of those belonging to the truth of cessation and the path, are said to be 'tainted', in the sense that they can be the focus of destructive emotions, which will result in further samsaric existence. Hence, in the Four Seals, it is said, "All that is tainted is suffering."
