Eight Barriers to our Progress



Truly, the greatest barriers to our progress lie not in the world outside but in our own minds. The scriptures speak of eight such bondages or anchors that bear us down.

They are:
Hatred,
Fear,
Shame,
Aversion,
Egoism,
Vanity,
Pride of noble descent, and
obsession with formal good conduct.

Any one of them can hinder our progress.
