Seven kinds of pride (Wyl. nga rgyal bdun)

  1. the simple pride (nga rgyal tsam) or lesser pride (nga rgyal chung) of thinking that you are the same as your peers
  2. the greater pride (che ba'i nga rgyal) of thinking that you are better than your equals
  3. exceeding pride (nga rgyal las kyang nga rgyal), i.e., thinking you are even better than those who are great
  4. the pride of thinking "I exist" (nga'o snyam pa'i nga rgyal)
  5. blatant pride (mngon pa'i nga rgyal), i.e., thinking you have greater qualities than you actually possess
  6. the pride of thinking that you are slightly inferior (cung zad snyam pa'i nga rgyal), i.e., thinking you are slightly inferior to those who are great, but that you are excellent nonetheless
  7. unfounded pride (log pa'i nga rgyal) i.e., taking pride in what is actually a fault
