Reply To: “Upadana” for Dhamma — Waharaka Thero sermon


That is a bit complicated. 

The standard PS cycle can be analyzed as the result of 16 sub-cycles! That is actually what happens WITHIN  a javana citta. Only a Buddha can “see” that process; we can only see that it must be true. It is a complex analysis. 

There was a discussion on it sometime back: “kusala mula PS leads not to rebirth.”

  • In a comment on May 27, 2022, at 8:27 pm (#37674) I discussed that briefly.
  • So, the verse you quoted above describes one of the earlier steps in the 16-cycle process. I quoted it above without realizing it.
  • It is not necessary to go through that analysis.
