We know bhavanga as a state of mind like being in an “angry mindset” for a certain time.
On the other hand there is bhavanga as life continuum. In the post citta vithi you say that “bhavaṅga citta can arise only within a citta vithi”. What does it mean? What is the difference between bhavanga and bhavanga citta?
When looking at the pañcadvāra citta vīthi it is shown like this:
B B B B B “AB BC BU PD CV Sam San V J J J J J J J T T” BT BT BT BT…
The “B B B …” is what? Is that just the mode of presentation for “bhavanga” and there is no real bhavanga citta?
