Reply To: Bhava: Seed of Consciousness


It will not be possible to understand the concept of bhava until one understands the difference between “kamma vinnana” and “vipaka vinnana.”
– That is why I say that most translators of Tipitaka DO NOT understand Paticca Samuppada. They just translate “vinnana” as “consciousness”. That leads to a MAJOR contradiction.
– If there is anyone who has read my post “Distortion of Pāli Keywords in Paṭicca Samuppāda” and does not see the contradiction, please make a comment. It is a CRITICAL point.
Even a child should be able to see the contradiction. May be I am not expressing it clear enough? If so, I need to re-write that post.
