Dear Dhamma friends,
According to SN 14.13 (= SA 457), the conditions of paññāpeti 'to reveal' are derived from the dhātu of avijjā 'ignorance' (see Choong Mun-keat, The Fundamental Teachings of Early Buddhism, p. 138). The noun form of paññāpeti is paññatti 'concept'. So, paññatti should be a mental phenomenon, i.e. a dhamma.
However, paññatti in the Abhidhammattha Sangaha "Comprehensive Manual of Abhidhamma" (p. 25, edited by Bhikkhu Bodhi) is regarded as not a dhamma.
Is it correct to say paññatti 'concept' is a conditioned phenomenon (dhamma), according to suttas, but not Abhidhammas?
