three kinds of hindrances
(三障). Hindrances to realization of one’s true mind are
(1) afflictions, such as greed, anger, and delusion, which agitate one’s mind and lead to negative karmas;
(2) karmas, done with one’s body, voice, and mind, which lead to requitals; and
(3) requital's, such as an unfortunate rebirth in human form with incomplete faculties, or in the form of animal, hungry ghost, or hell-dweller.
