“Dosa vinnana has one of the 3 bad roots/causes.
Karuna vinnana has one of the 3 good roots/causes.
Both are contaminated.”

This is not right.

Vinnana is contaminated with dasa akusala.
Vinnana with sobhana cetasika are not considered contaminated.
All sobhana cetasika, including the panna cetasika, are optimized at the Arahant stage.
An Arahant does not get a new bhava because he/she would not go through the “vedana paccaya tanha”, “tanha paccaya upadana”, and “upadana paccaya bhava” steps.

Also see AN 3.34 mentioned in the post that I posted today at the “How can vedana paccaya phassa?” topic.
