Visuddhimagga IV-145

Vibhaṅge pana ‘‘sampasādananti yā saddhā saddahanā okappanā abhippasādo. Cetaso ekodibhāvanti yā cittassa ṭhiti…pe… sammāsamādhī’’ti ettakameva vuttaṃ.


Ñ(IV,145): But that much is actually stated in the Vibhaṅga too with the words: ' "Confidence" is faith, having faith, trust, full confidence. "Singleness of mind" is steadiness of consciousness ... right concentration' (Vbh. 258).

Evaṃ vuttena pana tena saddhiṃ ayamatthavaṇṇanā yathā na virujjhati, aññadatthu saṃsandati ceva sameti ca, evaṃ veditabbā.


Ñ: And this commentary on the meaning should not be so understood as to conflict with the meaning stated in that way, but on the contrary so as to agree and concur with it.
