Reply To: Nibbida


One more point. Nibbidā is the opposite of abhinandana (or abhinandati.)

Abhinandati means “to highly value.”

We get attached to things in this world because we tend to highly value them. When one “sees” the bad long-term consequences of getting attached to such “mind-pleasing things,” one will start losing that perception.
– That is one way to look at “nibbidā.”
