Avijjà (Moha)=Ignorance

p369:

=========
I think when it say Avijja it include all three roots (attachement, aversion and ignorance)

Please see:
Are attahment,aversion and ignorance, three sides of the same coin?

I think Avijja has a wider meaning than Moha.
Eliminating Avijja a person can become an Arahant.
Person who eliminates Moha still have to do more work to become an Arahant.
