(Wylie: 'khon du 'dzin pa;
THL: khön du dzinpa)
Upanāha (Sanskrit; Tibetan phonetic: khön du dzinpa) is a Buddhist term translated as "resentment" or "enmity". It is defined as clinging to an intention to cause harm, and withholding forgiveness.
It is identified as:
- One of the twenty secondary unwholesome factors within the Mahayana Abhidharma teachings
The Abhidharma-samuccaya states:
- What is resentment? It is not letting go of an obsession which develops through association with the anger which underlies it. Its function is to be the basis of non-endurance.
