And for each and every moment is there a different Citta?
by (17.2k points)
Each and every moment is different experience. Each experience typically has a physical aspect and a mental aspect. So nothing physical or mental goes from this moment to the next

a ‘momentary state of mind‘ like a snapshot?

Thank you both for your answers. .  It’s very difficult to conceive in my brain also, as I’m also new to The Dhama

Is Chitta pronounced /chit/ (without the a)?  - There is a word in Thai,  ‘Jit’
/jit jai/ - mental condition (character of the heart/person)
/lork jit/  - (mental condition/perverted)

Would they be the same? Or used in the same context?

Citta is a moment of consciousness.  There are no electrical impulses in the mind. Mind is not physical. 

There are four realities: 

  1. Citta - consciousness
  2. Cetasika - mental concomitants
  3. Ruupa - form
  4. Nibbana

Chitta (Sanskrit) is the most fundamental layer of the mind. It is the container of the thought patterns in the mind. That is my definition from experience. So take it with a grain of salt.

Yoga is the stillness of the mind where there is no thought patterns/modification to the chitta.

I am quite unfamiliar with Buddhism and how this word "chitta" is used. So pardon me for any confusions.
