TBC: Mind and Mental Factors
LORIK (in tibetan) is also known as the “Mind, Awareness, Consciousness” . The study of mind and mental factor is very important. All our actions – positive, negative or neutral, are always motivated by our Mind.
According to various schools of thought, there are many types of minds, there could be 6 minds or 8 minds. Mind is not just one single mind per se.
As a result, the journey to understand the Mind and the Mental Factors can result in many Buddhists and non-Buddhists having confusing views on this profound albeit important topic.
