      From what I understand of kamma vipaka, it’s the avyākata PS. Based on the abhidhamma, are vipaka citta’s non-rooted (vipaka ahetu citta’s) or the 3 rooted (mula citta’s) or could be both?

      “From what I understand of kamma vipaka, it’s the avyākata PS. “

      • Yes. However, a kamma vipaka does not have to result from a specific past kamma. 
      • Various arammana can come to mind via the six senses associated with the body, which arose due to past kamma. 

      “Based on the abhidhamma, are vipaka citta’s non-rooted (vipaka ahetu citta’s) or the 3 rooted (mula citta’s) or could be both?”

      • A vipaka citta has no javana power; thus raga, dosa, or moha are not involved (ahetuka in that sense).
