The following is a quick summary:

  1. Before comprehending anatta, one must comprehend anicca.
  2. Before comprehending anicca, dukkha, and anatta, one must eliminate higher levels of dosa and patigha.
  3. The higher level of dosa/patigha is kodha (anger). One can be born in apayas until kodha (and higher levels of greed) are removed. See “Kodhapeyyāla
  4. Patigha is a much “lower level” of anger. One would not even talk harshly with patigha. It is a very lower level of anger and is “an irritation with another person.” But one can kill another person with kodha. Those with kodha tend to get angry quickly and tend to retaliate.
