Nīvaraṇa Sutta

1. Nīvaraṇa Vagga.– The sixth chapter of the Pañcaka Nipāta of the Aṅguttaranikāya. A.iii.63‑79.

2. Nīvaraṇa Vagga.– The fourth chapter of the Bojjhaṅga Saṃyutta. S.v.91‑8.

1. Nīvaraṇa Sutta.– These, monks, are the five hindrances. What five? The hindrance of sensual desire, ill-will, sloth and torpor, restlessness and remorse, and sceptical doubt. The Noble Eightfold Path should be developed and cultivated to fully understand and to destroy and abandon these five hindrances.

2. Nīvaraṇa Sutta.– The five hindrances (nivaraṇa) make one blind, lacking clarity, destroy wisdom, confuse, and do not lead  to nibbāna. The seven factors of enlightenment (bojjhaṅga) give one light and wisdom. S.v.97 f.

3. Nīvaraṇa Sutta.– The four foundations of mindfulness should be practised to get rid of the five hindrances. A.iv.457 f.
