Anguttara Nikaya 9.64 - Nivarana, unfree

"Nivarana" is un-freedom, the result of hindering, binding, trapping, restraining.


The Buddha Gotama said, there are five such un-freedoms: sensual desire, ill will, weariness, restlessness and anxiety. To renounce these, remain focused on the body, the mind, and the will - as independent co-dependent conditions of the emergent property of the "self" which has become unfree. Understanding these, in and of themselves, the conditions by which the self is both unfree and free may be understood, and obtained: the cause of these unfreedoms being known, they may be brought to end through non-sustaining, and the conditioning of freedom.
