      Hi, I have seen the above word being translated as mental proliferation in some sutta’s.. wondering if there is something more hidden to this word

      Papanca are basically papa kamma, also called kanha kamma: “Kanha (Dark) and Sukka (Bright) Kamma and Kammakkhaya“.

      More specifically, papanca refers to immoral thoughts (vaci sankhara) that one consciously generates in one’s mind.
