cetana and sankappa

Postby Stiphan » Wed Feb 24, 2010 3:41 pm

Why are cetana and sankappa both translated as "intention"? Are they the same thing in meaning, or are they the same just in name?

I am unclear what the difference would be between "resove" and "an act of will"..unless an act of will is literally a single willed act, and resolve is a settled intention..?

I found this really good source for your question/answer but can not copy and paste it.... so you will have to go to the web site to read it....

For me, cetana is a mental impulse, and sankappa is mental orientation or attitude.
