Greetings bhante,

Where does bhavanga fit, with respect the schema of the six consciousnesses... eye, ear, nose, tongue, tactile and mind?

Metta,

A lengthy, detailed discussion of this question is found in William Waldron's study of origin of the alasya notion, THE BUDDHIST UNCONSCIOUS: The alaya-vijnana in the context of Indian Buddhist Thought.

I see Yogacara as a major attempt to bridge the abhidharmas of the early Buddhist schools and later Mahayana sutras in order to increase the authenticity of the latter in the eyes of Buddhists.

I skimmed the chapter in Waldron's book on alaya-vijnana in the Theravada and I did not gain any clarity. Will have to study and not skim, I guess.

Vayadhammā saṅkhārā appamādena sampādethā — All things decay and disappoint, it is through vigilance that you succeed — Mahāparinibbāna Sutta

Tārakā timiraṃ dīpo māyāvaśyāya budbudaḥ supinaṃ vidyud abhraṃ ca evaṃ draṣṭavya saṃskṛtam — A shooting star, a clouding of the sight, a lamp, An illusion, a drop of dew, a bubble, A dream, a lightning’s flash, a thunder cloud — This is the way one should see the conditioned — Vajracchedikā Prajñāpāramitā

I have seen all things that are done under the sun, and behold, all is vanity and a chase after wind — Ecclesiastes 1.14
