Date: Sunday, August 2, 2009, 5:41 PMDear Dr Han Tun,- The seven cetasikas associate with all cittas including bhavanga citta.- Citta and vinnana are synonyms to one another.With Metta,Acara2009/8/1 han tun <hantun1@yahoo. com>Venerable Bhantes,
In Abhidhamma, under cetasikas, it is stated that Sabbacitta-saadhaar a.na cetasikas (Essential or Primary Ones) which consist of phassa, vedanaa, sa~n~naa, cetanaa, ekaggataa, jiivitindriya, and manasikaara, associate collectively with all cittas.
My question, sir, is do these seven cetasikas also associate with bhavanga-citta?
I would also be grateful if you would kindly let me know the difference between citta and vi~n~naa.na.
Dr Han Tun
