by late Ven. Nyanalokita Thera:
6 Bases (see āyatana):
Sex (see bhava):
5 Feelings (vedanā, q. v.):
5 Spiritual Faculties (see bala):
3 Supermundane Faculties:
(1-5, 7-8) are physical; (9) is either physical or mental. All the rest are mental.
(14) (see upekkhā) is here merely indifferent feeling (= adukkha-m-asukhā-vedanā, i.e. 'neither pleasant nor unpleasant feeling') and not identical with that highly ethical state of equanimity (= tatramajjhattatā, i.e. 'keeping everywhere the middle', the equipoise of mind), also called upekkhā which belongs to the group of mental formations (saṅkhāra-kkhandha; see Tab II).
(20) arises at the moment of entering the Sotāpatti-Path (Sotāpatti-magga), (21) on reaching the Sotāpatti-Fruition (Sotāpatti-phala), (22) at attaining the Arahat-Fruition (Arahatta-phala). For the three last, see ariya-puggala. The faculties, excepting (7) and (8), form one of the 24 conditions (see paccaya 16).
In Vibhaṅga V all these faculties are treated in the above order, whereas SN 4VIII enumerates and explains them by way of the above indicated groups, leaving only 20-22 unexplained. See Vis XVI; Path to Deliverance 138ff. - For the 5 spiritual faculties (15-19), see The Way of Wisdom (Wheel 65/66).
