'intention', will, is one of the seven mental factors (cetasika, q.v.) inseparably bound up with all consciousness, namely sensorial or mental contact (phassa), feeling (vedanā), perception (saññā), intention (cetanā), concentration (samādhi), vitality (jīvita), advertence (manasikāra). Cf. Tab. II, III.

With regard to karmical intention (i.e. advantageous or disadvantageous karma) it is said in A. VI, 13: "intention is action (karma), thus I say, o monks; for as soon as intention arises, one does the action, be it by body, speech or mind." For details, s. paticca-samuppāda (10), karma.
