Abhidhammic View of Kamma (3): Objects (aaramma.na)
[Presented by Dr.Tep Sastri@SariputtaDhamma/JTN/Mult]
CMA IV, p. 172 cont'd: Through the force of unwholesome kamma one encounters an undesirable object, and thus the resultant cittas in the cognitive process(cittaviithi) by which that object is cognized will be generated by the maturation of that unwholesome kamma. In this case the sense consciousness, reception, investigation, and registration cittas are necessarily unwholesome-resultants(akusalavipaaka). The accompanying feeling is always equanimity(upekkhaa), except in the case of body-consciousness, which is accompanied by pain.
Conversely, a desirable-neutral or a very desirable object is encountered through the force of wholesome kamma, and the resultant cittas in the cognitive process will be generated by the maturation of that wholesome kamma. In this case the same four resultant positions will be occupied by wholesome-resultants(kusalavipaaka). These cittas will generally be accompanied by equanimity, except that body-consciousness is accompanied by pleasure and, in the experience of an extremely desirable object, investigation and registration are accompnied by joy.
