We always experience such a passive state when our minds do not respond to external objects. This flow of Bhavaïga is interrupted when objects enter the mind. Then the Bhavaïga consciousness vibrates for one thought-moment and passes away. Thereupon the sense-door consciousness (Pa¤cadvàràvajjana) arises and ceases.
