Part of Lokiya Cittas.

15 cittas are rupavacara cittas. Rupa here means rupa brahma from 15 rupa brahma bhumi where there are both citta and rupa. Avcara means frequently arising. Rupavacara cittas most frequently arise in rupa brahma bhumis even though they can arise in other bhumi such as kama bhumi like deva bhumi and manussa bhumi or human realm.

15 rupavacara cittas or 15 rupajhana cittas can be divided into three groups depending on their origin or jati or type of citta. They are

  • 5 rupakusala cittas,
  • 5 rupavipaka cittas, and
  • 5 rupakiriya cittas.
