Then there are bhavanga-cittas and the last two of these, arising before the object is experienced through the mind-door, are specifically designated by a name. The process runs as follows:
- bhavanga calana (vibrating bhavanga)
- bhavangupaccheda (which is in this case the mind-door through which the cittas of the mind-door process will experience the object)
- mind-door-adverting-ccnsciousnes (mano-dvaravajjana-citta)
- 7 javanacitta
- 2 tadarammana-cittas (which may or may not arise) .
After the mind-door process has been completed there are bhavanga-cittas again.
Theravāda is a major branch of Buddhism having the the Pali canon (tipitaka) as their canonical literature, which includes the vinaya-pitaka (monastic rules), the sutta-pitaka (Buddhist sermons) and the abhidhamma-pitaka (philosophy and psychology).
