Is there a Pali word for mindstream?

Hi dhamma_newb,

In DN 28.7 we find:

♦ “puna caparaṃ, bhante, idhekacco samaṇo vā brāhmaṇo vā ātappamanvāya ... pe ... tathārūpaṃ cetosamādhiṃ phusati, yathāsamāhite citte imameva kāyaṃ uddhaṃ pādatalā adho kesamatthakā tacapariyantaṃ pūraṃ nānappakārassa asucino paccavekkhati — ‘atthi imasmiṃ kāye kesā lomā ... pe ... lasikā muttan’ti. atikkamma ca purisassa chavimaṃsalohitaṃ aṭṭhiṃ paccavekkhati. purisassa ca viññāṇasotaṃ pajānāti, ubhayato abbocchinnaṃ idha loke appatiṭṭhitañca paraloke appatiṭṭhitañca. ayaṃ catutthā dassanasamāpatti. etadānuttariyaṃ, bhante, dassanasamāpattīsu.

" ... again, having done this and gone further, he comes to know the unbroken
stream of human consciousness as established both in this world and in the
next. ..." [Walshe, Long Discourses, page 420, Wisdom Books, 1987.]

viññāṇasotaṃ: stream of consciousness.

Regards, Vincent.

bhavangasotam is one section of the more encompassing vinnanasotam.
