Visuddhimagga III-101

Mohacaritassa senāsanaṃ disāmukhaṃ asambādhaṃ vaṭṭati, yattha nisinnassa vivaṭā disā khāyanti,


Ñ(III,101): The right lodging for one of deluded temperament has a view and is not shut in, where the four quarters are visible to him as he sits there.

iriyāpathesu caṅkamo vaṭṭati.


Ñ: As to the postures, walking is right.

Ārammaṇaṃ panassa parittaṃ suppamattaṃ sarāvamattaṃ vā (khuddakaṃ) na vaṭṭati.


Ñ: The right kind of object for his contemplation is not small, that is to say, the size of a winnowing basket or the size of a saucer;

Sayādaw U Sīlānanda: [the size of a winnowing basket or the size of a saucer => not the size of a winnowing basket or not the size of a saucer].

Han: Mahāsī Sayādaw is the same as Sayādaw U Sīlānanda.

Sambādhasmiñhi okāse cittaṃ bhiyyo sammohamāpajjati, tasmā vipulaṃ mahākasiṇaṃ vaṭṭati.


Ñ: for his mind becomes more confused in a confined space; so the right kind is an amply large kasiṇa.

Sesaṃ dosacaritassa vuttasadisamevāti idaṃ mohacaritassa sappāyaṃ.


Ñ: The rest is as stated for one of hating temperament. This is what suits one of deluded temperament.
