Reply To: Kāma Guna, Kāma, Kāma Rāga, Kāmaccanda


I read this post on ‘Kāma Guna, Kāma, Kāma Rāga, Kāmaccanda’ quite a while back, and reread it after reading this thread.

From this, I take kāma to mean “liking kāma guna somewhat”, residual liking left in an anagami.

If this is so, is it also correct to say this about the stronger forms of liking:

kāma rāga = rāga for kāma guna
kāmaccanda = ccanda (iccha + anda) for kāma guna

Thank you!
