Utilization the truth of “One Citta at a time”
for real insight and easiness in daily life

(citta = mind or consciousness)

Nowadays, many meditators_yogi contemplate that mind, body, life or everything-etc; is impermanent, unsatisfactory and non-self.

Our intellect can understand any mind and body are not mine, yours, myself, and yourself. We understand that mind, body, life or everything is subject to change, impermanent, unsatisfactory and non-self.

But we still attach life, mind, body and the meditation method-etc; with strong likes and dislikes.

Why is our attachment to life, mind, body and the meditation method-etc; still strong?

It is because of mistaking that life(mind & body) our habitual perceptions can detect is real and existing for a certain period. In other words, we are misunderstanding that mind & body we contemplate are the Citta, Ceticeka,and Rupa the Buddha taught as original truths.

In Abhidhamma(Original truth_higher teaching of the Buddha), it says that there is only one mind or consciousness(citta) at a time for a mental process.

In reality(in original truth), one mind or consciousness can arise after the previous one has already disappeared. This is the natural law of mental process.

This law is known as the citta-niyàma (psychic order). The psychic order is that only one mind or consciousness(citta) can arise at a time.

In other words, each consciousness has to cease before the next one arises. One consciousness can appear after the previous one has already gone.

In reality, observing mind or mindful consciousness or mindfulness can’t see the real arising and passing away of the previous mind such as feeling, perception, volition or thinking etc; which is assigned as the object of meditation in cittanupassana and vedananupassana (contemplation of mind and feeling).

Because observing mind or mindfulness can arise after the previous mind or feeling or volition or thinking-etc has already disappeared according to the psychic order or natural law of mental process.

Nevertheless, our mindfulness or observing mind in meditation, seems to be seeing and observing the arising and passing away of the previous mind such as thinking or feeling or perception or volition or desire -etc which has already gone.

Why is it becoming like that?
So, why does one mind seem to see the previous one arising and passing away which has already gone?
In fact , it is just delusion or illusion.
It is just creation, fake and fraud.

That means the mind such as thinking or feeling or perception or volition or desire etc; our mindfulness is contemplating is not real. Thus, our contemplation of Anicca, dukkha, anatta concerning with the mind and body we are now understanding is also untrue and fake and fraud.

So, what we need to understand is-

In reality, according to citta-niyàma (psychic order or natural law of mental process) i.e. one citta at a time and two minds can’t arise at a same time; one mind is specified to arise only when the previous mind has already disappeared, but it seems to be seeing the previous one arising, existing and passing away.
Why ?
It is because of the deceitful actions or creations of the momentum of the previous minds which have already vanished.

In fact, one mind feels, perceives, knows or acts upon only the situation of nothing after the previous mind has already passed away because of the deceitful actions of the momentum of vanishing (impermanence) of previous mind.
