The Three Poisons

Art Description

The three poisons (rooster, pig and snake) keep people wandering in samsara. If we can identify the three poisons, we can learn to nurture the three positive attitudes, practice generosity and loving kindness. We don’t need to look far to see the three poisons at work. We see them every day in the news and on the streets, and if we pay attention, we can see them in our own minds and actions.
