In the post on ‘Kāma Guna, Kāma, Kāma Rāga, Kāmaccanda’, under #7, An Anāgami has removed kāma rāga, but still has kāma, i.e., likes them somewhat., does this mean that an Anagami still has liking for sense pleasures, even though they are not strong enough to lead to a bhava in kama loka?
Is this kama linked to the higher five samyojanas in any way?
One more question: In the days of the Buddha, did people listening to His discourses go from anariya to Anagami or Arahant right away, bypassing the Sotapanna stage? I may have read something about this before elsewhere.
Thank you very much in advance for your answers to my questions.
