A forum for those wishing to discuss Buddhist history and teachings in the Western academic manner, referencing appropriate sources.
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.
