  • children and babies, babies especially rely solely on their intuition. is that why they are sometimes referred to as perfect images of god. Because small infants don't really have an ego, they don't hold prejudice. Its when we grow up, we obtain the 5 vices, or so I may think are those five vices innate too? or is it acquired through society.(lol nature vs nurture)? ie if these five vices (kaam, krodh, lobh, moh, ahankar) didn't exist in a perfect society, would kids still grow up to acquire these characteristics.

I was watching a video of myself when I was 1 and I had the same expressions looking at certain people, as I do at this present moment. really interesting. In our bani does it say that god actually put these things (vices) in us?

Yes, they are innate. That's because all pranees are composed out of the five tattwas and the three gunas. Each of the five "vices" (I prefer to call them challenges because they must be understood, confronted and channeled) is the product of the associated tattwa. Explained in this video. "The 5 Challenges"

Google is your friend @;-)## The three energies are: sattva (creation), rajas (preservation), and tamas, (destruction.)

Actually infants and children do hold prejudice. There are cases were a twin has intentionally strangled their sibling for more attention. This is usually associated with sociopathy.
