Arahantādīnaṃ pana sīlaṃ sabbadarathappaṭippassaddhiyā parisuddhattā paṭippassaddhipārisuddhīti veditabbaṃ.


Ñ(I,139): (e) It is the virtue of the Arahants, etc., that should be understood as tranquillized purification, because of tranquillization of all disturbance and because of purifiedness.

Evaṃ pariyantapārisuddhiādivasena pañcavidhaṃ.


Ñ: So it is of five kinds as 'consisting in limited purification', and so on.
