The seven types of attachment (Tib. ཆགས་པ་རྣམ་པ་བདུན་, chakpa nampa dün, Wyl. chags pa rnam pa bdun) are:

  1. attachment to objects, beginning with material possession and extending to wrong views;
  2. procrastination;
  3. self-satisfaction;
  4. expectation of recompense;
  5. expectation of karmic result;
  6. dormant opposing factors (from avarice to distorted understanding); and
  7. distraction through interest in the Hinayana and belief in the true existence of object, subject, and action.[1]
