Magga and Phala cittas and cetasikas of Sotapanna,Sakadagami,Anagami
and Arahant can not be objects of clinging.
My guess on why they cant be objects of clinging is because those
states are free from clinging. I think that it may be possible for a
Sotapanna to have clinging to the thinking/memory of the experience
of Nibbana, but this would be clinging to a concept, not a direct
clinging to Nibbana itself.
Maybe someone can offer a more knowledgeable answer.
Azita, you mentioned in another post that you may be able to make it
to the next Cooran meeting? If so looking forward to seeing you again.
