Friends:

Experiencing Elimination removes the 3 Evil Roots!

The Blessed Buddha once said:
What, Ananda, is the experience of Elimination?
Here the Bhikkhu does neither tolerate nor allow any thought joined with
greed, lust, desire, craving, urging or longing to arise and establish itself,
he eliminates it, eradicates it, overcomes it, dispels it and abandons it...
Also the Bhikkhu does neither tolerate nor allow any thought joined with
hate, anger, ill-will, irritation, or resentment to arise and establish itself,
he eliminates it, eradicates it, overcomes it, dispels it and abandons it...
Also the Bhikkhu does neither tolerate nor allow any thought joined with
cruelty, brutality, violence, or viciousness to arise and establish itself,
he eliminates it, eradicates it, overcomes it, dispels it and abandons it...
Similarly with all other arisen evil and disadvantageous mental states,
he does neither tolerate nor allow them to gain a footing before he right
there & then, quickly, on the very spot eliminates them, overcomes them,
destroys them, annihilates them, dispels them and abandons them...
When successful: Then this is the experience of Elimination!

2: Gradual evaporation of hate
.
3: Gradual purification by elimination of all detrimental states!
