Reply To: Post on An Apparent “Self” Is Involved in Kamma Generation


I wanted to aks for clarification:

It is said by some that defilements and also anusaya can only be eradicated by the magga-citta, for example this is said by Nina van Gorkom who writes a lot about Abhidhamma.

Does this also mean that one can not get rid of defilements and anusaya by not feeding them anymore? Maybe they will weaken by not feeding it anymore but they cannot be uprooted this way? So we can be mindfull of the arising of lust for sense pleausures, for example, let them go while they arise, not feed them, know the danger in it, but this cannot uproot them? Lust for sense pleasure will not really disappear this way? (lust for sense-pleaure as example).
