Chapter 20 Vasanas : 2.

2. Chapalata -

Chapalata is Vasana of a mild type.

It lasts for a short time only.

There are two kinds of important Chapalatas.

There is the Jihva-Chapalata of the tongue where the tongue wants to eat the various things every now and then.

It is a form of morbid appetite.

Rich people who lead a luxurious life have this form of Chapalata.

The other variety is the Upastha-Chapalata wherein the sex Indriyas wants to taste again and again the sexual enjoyment (Sparsa).
