Reply To: Difference between ajjhosānaṁ and tanha;


I have read all the posts you have cited.


#1 Both the links in point 1 of your reply #41868 leads to same post.

(TO post: tanha paccaya upadana: critical step in …)


#2 indriya => phassa => vedana => tanha … {until this steps, everything is clear}

Can you verify the meanings and translation of following steps? (written in sequence as per section 9.1)

=> pariyesanā is translated as “seeking” at suttacentral

(I assume it has meaning of seeking pancakkhanda, having inclination towards particular type of pancakkhanda)

=> lābho is translated as “gaining” (what was sought).

=> vinicchayo is translated asassessing“. (Not sure,)

I assume assessing means assessing whether something is fruitful, pleasurable, valuable, useful to one or not)

=> chandaraga (interest and liking) (no doubt in this step.)

=> ajjhosānaṁ (you have explained this one above)

=> pariggaho is translated as “Ownership” on SuttaCentral.

feeling of ownership (possibly due to PUK)

=> macchariyaṁ is translated as “stinginess”. (not wanting to share something with others)

=> ārakkho is translated as safeguarding (protecting something)

=>ārakkho leads to fights/wars/arguments in short dasa akusala


#3 What is Difference between three modes of tanha (via each of tri san) and three types of tanha (kama tanha, bhava tanha, vibhava tanha), not meaning but, difference among this two concepts, how this two concepts are connected to each other?
My opinion =
I think vibhava tanha is due to moha.
bhava tanha due to avijja,
kama tanha due to lobha and dosa. (Kama tanha also has level from kamacchanda to kamaraga to kama)
Ofcourse, lobha/dosa is due to vipallasa of tilakkhana and avijja of 4NT.
