- Skandha-mara (五蕴魔): troubles due to five senses.
- Klesa-mara (烦恼魔): troubles due to greed, hatred, ignorance etc.
- Mrtya-mara (死魔): deaths.
- Deva-putra-mara (天子魔): almost equivalent to the Devil.
It is said also that except for those profound dharma practitioners, ordinary folks like you and me will not have a chance to come across the deva-putra-mara so to speak.
