Then there are bhavanga-cittas and the last two of these, arising before the object is experienced through the mind-door, are specifically designated by a name. The process runs as follows:

    bhavanga calana (vibrating bhavanga)
    bhavangupaccheda (which is in this case the mind-door through which the cittas of the mind-door process will experience the object)
    mind-door-adverting-ccnsciousnes (mano-dvaravajjana-citta)
    7 javanacitta
    2 tadarammana-cittas (which may or may not arise) .

After the mind-door process has been completed there are bhavanga-cittas again.
