'Cetasikas' by Nina van Gorkom
Questions, comments and different views welcome;-)
[Ch15- Attachment (lobha) contd]
The sotåpanna ( the streamwinner, who has attained the first
stage of enlightenment) has eradicated clinging which is
accompanied by wrong view, but the other forms of clinging may
still arise. The anågåmí (the non-returner, who has attained the
third stage of enlightenment) has eradicated all forms of sensuous
clinging, but he still clings to birth. He may cling to rúpa-jhåna
and its result and to arúpa-jhåna and its result. He has no eternity
view because he is without wrong view. The arahat has eradicated
all kinds of clinging, he does not cling to any kind of rebirth. For
him there are no longer conditions for rebirth.
When there is mindfulness of the present object more often, we
will see more clearly how deep-rooted our clinging is. We can
prove in this way that the Abhidhamma teaches about realities.
We will learn that there is clinging to all the objects which are
experienced through the six doors.
[Attachment (lobha) to be contd]
