- Dear Dhamma Friends,
As soon as appanaa samaadhi arise the mind sinks into bhavanga
or life-continuum again for some time. When this appanaa samaadhi
arises for the first time this happens like this.
We have extensively studied on viithi or procession of cittas. Here
will be very helpful to consider on processions of cittas. When the
practitioner is on upacaara samaadhi this means that he or she is
having javanaa cittas which are mahaa-kusala-cittas.
These mahakusala cittas normally arise only 7 times in a procession.
Before that there will be repeated processions of many viithi vaara.
When upacaara samaadhi become very mature and it is just going to
arise appanaa samaadhi the viithi vara will be like the following.
B = bhavanga citta
M = manodvaravajjana citta
J = javana cittas (here mahakusala cittas)
D = tadaarammana citta
P = parikamma mahakusala citta
U = upacaara mahakusala citta
A = anuloma mahakusala citta
G = gotrabhu citta (the last kaama citta, after which is jhaana
Jh= first jhaana citta
May you be free from suffering.
