AN.VII.12 Dutiya Anusaya Sutta It is a monk's duty to follow the Brahma-faring for the relinquishing of the seven subtle defilements [anusaya]: 1. grasping [raaga]; 2. annoyance [pa.tigha]; 3. view [di.t.thi]; 4. absent mindedness [vicikicchaa]; 5. stubbornness [maana]; 6. craving for existence [bhavaraaga], and; 7. ignorance avijjaa]. When a monk is free from these seven subtle defilements, has cut them off at the roots like palm tree stumps so they cannot arise again in the future, he can say he has cut off all craving, uprooted the fetters and has made an end of suffering. 37/020 Sattaka Nipaata, Pa.thamapa.n.naasaka A"nguttara A.iv.
