What sin (dust) is the worst?

Which sin (dust) is the worst?

What are the sins that causes sufferings in the world? In the Tip of the Writing brush, there are 5 dusts mentioned. These are arrogance, greed, miserliness, covetousness and self love. In other Tenrikyo references, anger, hate and grudge bearing are included.

Of the 8 dust, two are mentioned the most in our church doctrines. These are greed and arrogance. Miserliness and covetousness, can  be included as part of greed. While anger, hate, and  grudge bearing can also be part of the dust of arrogance.

But what dust is seen more frequently in the world today and which one causes the most suffering in this world?  In the Tip of the writing brush, Greed is mentioned the most. In this world, we see greed of wealth and power.  For many of us, we think that wealth and power will give us happiness. Many try to attain it even if it means that others may suffer.

But we see arrogance in this world causing wars and destruction. There are many people in the world that think they are better than others, and sometimes even  claim that God favors  them.  Even some religions show their arrogance by their ban on other religions, and their harsh treatment of those that do not follow their teachings.

But the dust of self love appears to encompass all the dusts. If we are honest and work hard and start to worry less about our selves , then God  will take care of everything, and the world will become joyous for all.
