    While faultfinding may be an outcome of several mental states, it is often the mind's attempt to gain a superior position over others. Duyodhana was expert at finding faults in others regardless of their purity, and he had a knack for disregarding his own shortcomings. Lacking empathy for the suffering of others, he would use any means to achieve his goals. This is a common personality profile of demonic persons. And the root of their problem is their lack of proclivity for developing their...

I have written a poem on another blog, "Is Yard Work Devotional Service?", [http://connect.krishna.com/node/2955] which speaks of this topic, though now I am looking at it differently.
