ATI Glossary

citta: Mind; heart; state of consciousness.

 

Buddhist Dictionary

by late Ven. Nyanatiloka Thera:

citta: 'mind', 'consciousness', 'state of consciousness', is a synonym of mano and viññāṇa (see khandha and Table I). Dhammasaṅgaṇi divides all phenomena into consciousness (citta), mental concomitants (see cetasika) and corporeality (rūpa).

In adhicitta, 'higher mentality', it signifies the concentrated, quietened mind, and is one of the 3 trainings (see sikkhā).

The concentration (or intensification) of consciousness is one of the 4 roads to power (see Iddhipāda ).
