Reply To: Difference between Tanha and Upadana

OK, Arahants still generate manosankhara. But there is no akusala gati. Thus those manosankhara are not defiled with gati. As you say in the post Difference Between Tanhā and Upādāna, #4:

Then manō saṅkhāra arise automatically according to gati. That will happen as long as we have taṇhā (either via kāma rāga or paṭigha; avijjā is present in both cases). We automatically get attracted.”

So tanha can arise if asobhana or sobhana cetasika are included in the cittas and paññā is absent.
