Reply To: Vipaka Vinnana and the evolution of a citta


Pabhassara citta is the first stage in the 9 stages. So, it does not even get to the second stage of “mano”.

Even for an Arahant, a citta evolves to the third stage of “manasan.”
– But if the Arahant is in Arahant-phala Samapatti, that is when the Arahant experiences the pabhassara citta.
