Visuddhimagga IV-139

Ettāvatā cesa vitakkavicārānaṃ vūpasamā ajjhattaṃ sampasādanaṃ cetaso ekodibhāvaṃ avitakkaṃ avicāraṃ samādhijaṃ pītisukhaṃ dutiyaṃ jhānaṃ upasampajja viharati.



Ñ(IV,139): And at this point, 'With the stilling of applied and sustained thought he enters upon and dwells in the second jhāna, which has internal confidence and singleness of mind without applied thought, without sustained thought, with happiness and bliss born of concentration' (Vbh. 245),

Sayādaw U Sīlānanda: The word 'stilling' also means 'overcoming'; [has internal confidence and singleness of mind => is confident and arouses singleness of mind,]; The words 'with happiness and bliss born of concentration' has two meaning, i.e. (A) That jhāna is born of concentration and accompanied by Pīti & Sukha. (B) It is accompanied by Pīti & Sukha born of concentration.

Evamanena dvaṅgavippahīnaṃ tivaṅgasamannāgataṃ tividhakalyāṇaṃ dasalakkhaṇasampannaṃ dutiyaṃ jhānaṃ adhigataṃ hoti pathavīkasiṇaṃ.

他如是舍离二支,具备三支,三种善及十相成就,证得地遍的第二禅。[PTS 156]

Ñ: and so he has attained the second jhāna, which abandons two factors, possesses three factors, is good in three ways, possesses ten characteristics and is of the earth kasiṇa. [156]
