- May 1, 2006Hi Howard,
thanks for your report. There are a few problems. Fruition-consciousness is
vipaakacitta and it does not eradicate any defilement. Ven. Bhikkhu says
doubt and self view are uprooted later on, but only magga-citta eradicates.
This is strange, because there are no other maggacirras arising before
