Kliṣṭamanas ; (Tib. nyon yid) afflicted Mind. The many types of afflictive emotions (kleśas), stored as bījas (seeds) in the ālayavijñāna. They are projected in the Form of related saṃskāras when the personal-I is focused upon an object of desire. When these emotional saṃskāras surface they immediately fuse with the Mental Consciousness (manovijñāna), to produce such things as desire-Mind, self-will, (i.e., the four types of “afflictive emotions”) or forms of ego-clinging. The emotions always manifest in relation to a concept of “self”, executing the will to appropriate things desired. They thus produce attachments for all things deemed pleasurable, glamorous, or needy by the personality, and react to that which they dislike.
