Ñ(IV,180): Once this has been obtained in this way, and once he has mastery in the five ways already described, then on emerging from the now familiar third jhāna, he can regard the flaws in it thus: 'This attainment is threatened by the nearness of happiness; "Whatever there is in it of mental concern about bliss proclaims its grossness" (D.i,37; see Ch.
