Reply To: How Can Arahant Use Abhiññā Power Without Javana Citta?


I already know all three of them. What I want to hear is a mechanism that can explain how Arahant can use abhiññā powers despite he/she can not make a javana citta.

Javana of a Citta – The Root of Mental Power
“Finally, These javana cittā have the power to produce suddhāṭṭhaka, the fundamental building blocks of rupa.”

So, Cūḷapanthaka Thero’s iddhividha is based on the javana citta that can produce suddhāṭṭhaka.

But, Arahant can never have javana citta. That’s why the question arises.

Perhaps I had mistakenly extended that Arahant cannot generate javana citta related to akusala to not be able to generate all javana citta.

Or, it may not be this. Anyway, I know something is wrong, but I don’t know what’s wrong.

I’d appreciate any help or advice you can give me.

with metta.
