Part of Akusala Cittas.
There are 2 moha mula cittas. They are:
- upekkha sahagatam vicikiccha samyutta cittam
- upekkha sahagatam uddhcca samyutta cittam
1. The first moha citta is seen in a case of undecisiveness when a person cannot decide right or wrong and he has suspicion on the matter.
2. The second moha citta can be seen in most people while they are wandering thinking fancily. This can be seen especially in case of grief reaction. When someone lost, then there is restlessness and people concerned are upseted.
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).
