Example text

In reality the world lasts just for one moment, namely, when citta arises and cognizes an object just for that moment; and then the world falls away together with the citta. In the “Buddhist Psychological Ethics” ( the “Dhammasangaùi”, Book I, Part I, Ch I, § 6) several synonyms for citta have been given. Citta is called mind (mano or månasa), heart (hadaya), “that which is pure”(paùèara), mind-base (manåyatana), faculty of mind (manindriya), consciousness (viññåùa), the khandha of consciousness (viññåùakkhandha), the element of “mind-consciousness” (mano-viññåùa dhåtu) 3.

Citta, cetasika and rúpa fell away for good, never to arise again. This was the cessation of rebirth, the end of the cycle of birth and death. There are four stages of attaining enlightenment and at each of these stages defilements are eradicated. The sotåpanna (stream-winner, who has attained the first stage of enlightenment), the sakadågåmí (once-returner, who has attained the second stage of enlightenment), and the anågåmí (non-returner, who has attained the third stage of enlightenment) are “learners” (sekha), because they still have to continue to develop higher degrees of paññå in order to eradicate the defilements which are still remaining.
