Reply To: A Question about Paññā of Puthujjanō


Thanks for your reply sir!

I’ll refer to the bullet number in the next question. I apologize for making you search.

(if you don’t know the keyboard shortcut ‘Ctrl + f’, I suggest using it. It’s good to find a certain word/sentence on the website easily)

Now I got a sense of the cetasika paññā more clearly.

Paññā has a very special position in the six sobhanas as it only appears in the beginning lokottara path. (Sotāpanna Anugāmi)

That means, before becoming Ariya (while in the mundane path), puthujjanō has just mundane Samma Ditthi, not paññā.

Of course, mundane Samma Ditthi is the base for reaching super mundane Samma Ditthi, but it can’t be considered as ‘paññā’ directly.
