-“is careless attention not the same as wrong view”
Reading the whole of the sutta:
Ayonisomanasikara gives rise to and strenghtens micchaditthi
Yonisomanasikara gives rise to and strenghtens sammaditthi
But the immediate, the direct cause of what type of destination follows (sugata or dugata) is ditthi (samma or michha), the manasikara (yoniso or ayoniso) being only the means towards ditthi.
So, as I read, ‘careless attention’ is not the same as wrong view. Yet, ditthi, of either type, in turn lead to manisikara, yoniso or ayoniso , what Lal expounds as Dhamma/kusala and aDhamma/akusala.
Correct me anyone if that is not quite right.
