Sybe07 asked: “In other words, does the arising of the magga citta stay unnoticed? Do we not have some kind of experience?”
One will have the experience of a “cooled mind.” One will not be perturbed as one used to.
But that happens gradually, over time, in the Sotapanna Anugami stage.
– That is why I said it does not register as a “bolt of lightning.”
I just remembered that in one sutta, a bhikkhuni asks Ven. Ananda about her experience. Then Ven. Ananda explains to her that it is the mindset of an Arahant.
– So, she did not even realize that she had attained the Arahanthood!
– If anyone knows the name of the sutta, please post it.
Anyway, I think that is enough discussion about the “phala moment.”
