Introduction to Abhidhamma by Nina Van Gorkom - Question

Post by maranadhammomhi » Sun Mar 26, 2017 2:31 am

"when someone speaks unpleasant words to us, the moment of experiencing the sound (hearing-consciousness) is akusala vipāka, the result of an unwholesome deed we performed ourselves."

What is the unwholesome deed we performed ourselves? Just any past negative kamma? Or something specific to the interaction?

we cannot know what the original deed was. It could be from this life, or last life or from thousands of lives ago.
