Peter Harvey, in The Selfless Mind, walks us through early Buddhist ideas about self, personality, and nibanna. Here, I share three videos where I read the sections on what is called Bhavanga Citta, on what has been called the Radiant Citta, and a section that elucidates connections in the early suttas between these two concepts.

From Bhavanga to Javana (Impulsion) and Registration
Relevant selections. These are images grabbed off the internet. I couldn’t find a great place from which to copy and paste. accesstoinsight.org has a translation, but I notice that it is, once again, missing chunks which seem pretty dang relevant– it is strange to me.. There is a lot of slicing and dicing of the Suttas there.
