Of course, there are passages that say Citta accumulates. So what to do? There is also a passage that say this thinking is the problem, and that's why Alaya is pure. It is the advent of the koan. Philosophy is just a koan. If the system's tree can be drawn in two ways, there's obviously nothing essential being said, only illustration. Even 12-links is said in different ways in the Pali texts. Whatever, fixed system you see, it is the Citta, Manas and Manovijnana.
