Re: Do we create akusala or kusala cittas in sleep?

What you suggest is utter absurd Santa. I am telling you again, not to just base your reading only on one book. just open up. Dhamma is an experience and not a book. You have become completely a jerk now.

Do we create akusala or kusala cittas in sleep?

Do we create kusala or akusala cittas when we are in sleep? Is dreaming intentional? Do not be quick to respond to this with a book like what Santa does.

Re: How do the first cittas of akusala citta become akusala?

Santa,

Mind you threatening language. Try to think apart from Bhikkhu Bodhi. You are just a reflection of someone. Try to think on your own. Yes, I said so. beoz I am trying to understand it and not with one book. Also look for other books too.

Re: How do the first cittas of akusala citta become akusala?

Hey Santa, This is what the books says by Bhikkhu Bodhi. But "lacks this factor of wisdom" generally means the opposite of wisdom although he cannot name it avijja or moha. Avoiding micchaditthi is kinda involving with samma ditthi. I think you are struggling with language and not the real experienc...

Re: How do the first cittas of akusala citta become akusala?

Hi Santa, I found something very relative. If we really want to know what is "vippayutta" we should take it as "moha" We can see this under kama sobhana cittas. See the following. There are 4 ñāṇa sampayutta & 4 ñāṇa vippayutta cittas here. The ñāṇa sampayutta cittas are associated with wisdom or ñā...

How to explain the influence of akusala vipaka citta

I want to know how to practically explain how an akusala or kusala kamma affect one's conciousness here? ‘cakkhu viññāṇaṃ’ means eye consciousness. It is the citta or consciousness that arises only in the eye. It arises at the time of seeing, at the time when there is contact with a visible object. ...

Re: How do the first cittas of akusala citta become akusala?

I am saying "ditthigata sampayutta" is clearly wrong belief. Correct. Ditthigata- sampayuuta /Speculative-view(Wrongview)- Association is different from ditthigata- vippayutta /SpeculativeView- Dissociation , hence there's no right view in "somanassa sahagata diṭṭhigata sampayutta asaṅkhārika citta...
