Points of Controversy
19.4. Of Attainment (patti)
Theravādin: Again, do you imply that the winning through gifts of raiment, almsfood, lodging, medicine, is unconditioned? But if so, the same difficulty arises as in the case of attainment in general (Kv19.4.1). In fact, you would have in these four and Nibbāna five “unconditioneds.”
A similar argument is used for the winning of any of the Rūpa jhānas (4), or of the Arūpa jhānas (4), or of the Four Paths and Four Fruits, concluding with: In fact, you would have in these eight and Nibbāna nine “unconditioneds,” etc.
If not, then it is unconditioned.
