Reply To: Macchariya in Abhidhammattha sangaha


The following post is from Billy:

Hi Lal, Thank you very much for your answer.

I read another meaning of Macchariya that means selfishness I want to know if selfishness is the meaning of Macchariya? Because this meaning will make people think that Macchariya is in the Lobha team.

My friend also sent me a link to the Pali Mahāniddeso jarāsuttaniddeso page
She told me to see {206.1}

She asked me why the Lord Buddha taught that Macchariya is the same group as Lobha.
But after I read your answer in this post, I immediately believed that your answer was correct, but I still didn’t understand much. I would like to thank you once again for writing the answer as well.
