Cetanā Sutta

1. Cetanā Sutta.– That which we will and intend to do and with which we are occupied, that becomes an object (ārammaṇa) for the persistence of consciousness (viññāṇa). The object being there, there comes to be a station of consciousness. Consciousness being stationed and growing, there is renewed existence (punabbhavābhinibbatti) with all its consequent ills. S.ii.65 f.

2. Dutiya Cetanā Sutta.– Same as (1), with mind and matter (nāma-rūpa) substituted for renewed existence, and the other factors of dependent origination (paṭicca-samuppāda) following therefrom. S.ii.66.

3. Tatiya Cetanā Sutta.– Same as (1), except that consciousness, being stationed and growing, there comes an inclination (nati) followed, serially, by a “going to a coming” (āgatigati), decease, rebirth, etc. S.ii.66 f.

4. Cetanā Sutta.– The arising of volitional acts is the appearing of decay-and-death; their cessation, its cessation. S.iii.230.

5. Cetanā Sutta.– The desire and lust that is in will, concerning shape, etc., is corruption of the heart. S.iii.233.

6. Cetanā Sutta.– Volitional acts occasioned by form, sound, etc., are impermanent. S.iv.227.

7. Cetanā Sutta.– Taught to Ānanda. Rebirth is due to intention (cetanā) and aspiration (paṭṭhāna) being established in a lower element because of ignorance. A.i.224.

8. Cetanā Sutta.– Where there is action of body, speech or mind, there arises pleasure or pain caused by intention (cetanā). This is due to ignorance; when ignorance is destroyed, there is no field or base for such action. A.ii.157 f.

9. Cetanā Sutta.– In a monk possessed of good conduct spiritual life proceeds spontaneously, not intentionally. A.v.2 f.

10. Cetanā Sutta.– The same, in substance, as (9). A.v.312 f.
