Visuddhimagga V-14

Idhāpi uggahanimitte kasiṇadoso paññāyati, kesaradaṇḍakapattantarikādīni upaṭṭhahanti.


Ñ(V,14): And here too any fault in the kasiṇa is evident in the learning sign; the stamens and stalks and the gaps between the petals, etc., are apparent.

Paṭibhāganimittaṃ kasiṇamaṇḍalato muñcitvā ākāse maṇitālavaṇṭasadisaṃ upaṭṭhāti.


Ñ: The counterpart sign appears like a crystal fan in space, free from the kasiṇa disk.

Sesaṃ vuttanayeneva veditabbanti.


Ñ: The rest should be understood as already described.


Ñ: The blue kasiṇa.

Chew: 「青遍」.
