The three mental non-virtues are:
- Covetousness: thinking, "May this become mine," desiring something that belongs to another.
- Harmful intent: wishing to injure others, be it great or small injury.
- Wrong view: viewing some existent thing, such as rebirth, cause and effect, or the Three Jewels*, as non-existent.
*The core of Buddhism: Buddha, his doctrine (Dharma), and the Spiritual Community.
