Reply To: post on dasa akusala

Yes, agreed. But mano sankhara belong to vipaka citta and do not generate kamma. Dasa akusala means bad kamma. Thus the term mano sankhara is somehow misleading; the term “micca sankappa” is better (“wrong thoughts with intention”).

Of course Paṭiccasamuppādavibhaṅga includes the 3 categories mano …, vaci…, kaya sankhara for the PS step “avijja paccaya sankhara”. One needs to know the context in which the term mano sankhara is used.
