The personality defects that are there in a person’s mind are responsible for unhappiness, whereas one’s qualities are responsible for happiness and contentment. Personality defects are a serious impediment in one’s spiritual practice. This is because they cause us to make mistakes which harm ourselves and others thus keeping us in the cycle of birth and death. In this section we share the process of how to remove personality defects in order to gain lasting personality improvement and make rapid spiritual progress.
