kiriya: Description welcome. Info can be removed after imput.
by late Ven. Nyanalokita Thera:
➥ kiriya, or kriya-citta:1) 'functional consciousness' or 'kammically inoperative consciousness', is a name for such states of consciousness as are neither kammically wholesome (kusala), nor unwholesome (akusala), nor kamma-results (vipāka); that is, they function independently of kamma. Thus are also called all those worldly mental states in the Arahat which are accompanied by 2 or 3 noble roots (greedlessness, hatelessness, undeludedness), being in the Arahat kammically neutral and corresponding to the kammically wholesome states of a non-Arahat (see Table I 1-8 and 73-89), as well as the rootless mirth-producing (hasituppāda) mind-consciousness-element of the Arahat (Table I 72); further, that mind-element (mano-dhātu) which performs the function of advertence (āvajjana) to the sense object (Table I 70), and that mind-consciousness-element (manoviññāṇa-dhātu) which performs the functions of deciding (voṭṭhapana) and advertence to the mental object (Table I 71). The last-named 2 elements, of course, occur in all beings.
