      Dear Dhamma Friends,

      'Kamma.t.thaana'

      kamma.t.thaana/Samatha/Kasi.na/Pathavii

      As soon as appanaa samaadhi arise the mind sinks into bhavanga
      cittas
      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
      it
      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.B.B.M.J.J.J.J.J.J.J.D.D.B

      B.B.B.M.P.U.A.G.Jh.B.B.B.B.B.B.B....

      Here

      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
      citta)
      Jh= first jhaana citta

      May you be free from suffering.

      With Unlimited Metta,

      Htoo Naing
