Strings of sensuality. The objects of the five physical senses: visible objects, sounds, aromas, flavors, and tactile sensations. Usually refers to sense experiences that, like the strings (guna) of a lute when plucked, give rise to pleasurable feelings (vedana).

'condition', is something on which something else, the so-called 'conditioned thing', is dependent, and without which the latter cannot be. Many are the ways in which one thing, or one occurrence, may be the condition for some other thing, or occurrence. In the Patthāna, the last book of the Abhidhamma Pitaka comprising 6 large vols. in the Siamese edition, these 24 modes of conditionality are enumerated and explained, and then applied to all conceivable mental and physical phenomena and occurrences, and thus their conditioned nature is demonstrated.

The first two volumes of the Patthāna have been translated into English by the Venerable U Nārada mūla patthāna Sayadaw of Burma, under the title Conditional Relations Published by the Pāli Text Society, London 1969, 1981.

The 24 modes of conditionality are:

1. Root condition: hetu paccaya
2. Object: ārammana
3. Predominance: adhipati
4. Proximity: anantara
5. Contiguity: samanantara
6. Co-nascence: sahajāta
7. Mutuality: aññamañña
8. Support: nissaya
9. Decisive Support: upanissaya
10. Pre-nascene: purejāta
11. Post-nascene: pacchājāta
12. Repitition: āsevana
13. Kamma: kamma
14. Kamma-result: vipāka
15. Nutriment: āhāra
16. Ability: indriya
17. Jhāna: jhanas
18. path: magga
19. Associaton: sampayutta
20. Dissociation: vippayutta
21. Presence: atthi
22. Absence: natthi
23. Disappearance: vigata
24. Non-disappearance: avigata

'doubt', may be either an intellectual, critical doubt or an ethically and psychologically detrimental doubt. The latter may either be a persistent negative skepticism or wavering indecision. Only the detrimental doubt identical with vicikicchā is to be rejected as kammically disadvantageous, as it paralyses thinking and hinders the inner development of man. Reasoned, critical doubt in dubious matters is thereby not discouraged.

The 16 doubts enumerated in the Suttas e.g. M. 2 are the following: Have I been in the past? Or, have I not been in the past? What have I been in the past? How have I been in the past? From what state into what state did I change in the past? - Shall I be in the future? Or, shall I not be in the future? What shall I be in the future? How shall I be in the future? From what state into what state shall I change in the future? - Am I? Or, am I not? What am I? How am I? Whence has this being come? Whither will it go?

perhaps related to Sanskrit krtsna 'all, complete, whole', is the name for a purely external device to produce and develop concentration of mind and attain the 4 absorptions Jhanas. It consists in concentrating one's full and undivided attention on one visible object as preparatory image parikamma-nimitta e.g. a colored spot or disc, or a piece of earth, or a pond at some distance, etc., until at last one perceives, even with the eyes closed, a mental reflex, the acquired image uggaha-nimitta Now, while continuing to direct one's attention to this image, there may arise the spotless and immovable counter-image patibhāga-nimitta and together with it the neighbourhood-concentration upacāra-samādhi will have been reached. While still persevering in the concentration on the object, one finally will reach a state of mind where all sense-activity is suspended, where there is no more seeing and hearing, no more perception of bodily contact and feeling, i.e. the state of the 1st mental absorption.

The 10 kasinas mentioned in the Suttas are: earth-kasina, water, fire, wind, blue, yellow, red, white, space, and consciousness. There are 10 kasina-spheres: someone sees the earth kasina, above, below, on all sides, undivided, unbounded. someone see the water-kasina, above, below, etc. M. 77; D. 33 Cf. abhibhāyatan bhāvanā further s. Fund. IV.

For space and consciousness-kasina we find in Vis.M V the names limited space-kasina paricchinnākāsa-kasina.. see: App. and light-kasina āloka-kasina

For full description see Vis.M IV-V

'conception', lit. 'descent', designates the appearance of the embryo in the mother's womb, i.e. the beginning of the birth process jāti.;Through the concurrence of 3 circumstances arises the embryo. When father and mother have united,... and the mother has her time, and the 'genius' metaphorically for the kamma energy is ready; under these 3 circumstances does the embryo appear; M. 38.
