Visuddhimagga IV-188

Nānāvajjaneyeva ca dutiyajjhānupacāre pahīnassa domanassindriyassa yasmā etaṃ vitakkavicārapaccayepi kāyakilamathe cittupaghāte ca sati uppajjati.


Ñ(IV,188): And during the second-jhāna access too, which has multiple adverting, there could be realising of the [mental] grief faculty, although it had already ceased there, because it arises when there is bodily weariness and mental vexation, which have applied thought and sustained thought as their condition,

Sayādaw U Sīlānanda: [multiple => different].

Vitakkavicārābhāve ca neva uppajjati.


Ñ: but it does not arise when applied and sustained thought are absent.

Yattha pana uppajjati, tattha vitakkavicārabhāve, appahīnā eva ca dutiyajjhānupacāre vitakkavicārāti tatthassa siyā uppatti, na tveva dutiyajjhāne, pahīnapaccayattā.


Ñ: When it arises, it does so in the presence of applied and sustained thought, and they are not abandoned in the second-jhāna access; but this is not so in the second jhāna itself because its conditions are abandoned there.
