Visuddhimagga VI-20

So taṃ nimittaṃ suggahitaṃ karoti, sūpadhāritaṃ upadhāreti, suvavatthitaṃ vavatthapeti.


Ñ(VI,20): 'When he has properly apprehended the sign, properly remembered it, properly defined it,

So taṃ nimittaṃ suggahitaṃ katvā sūpadhāritaṃ upadhāretvā suvavatthitaṃ vavatthapetvā eko adutiyo gacchati upaṭṭhitāya satiyā asammuṭṭhāya antogatehi indriyehi abahigatena mānasena gatāgatamaggaṃ paccavekkhamāno.


Ñ: he goes alone with no companion, with unremitting mindfulness established, with his sense faculties turned inwards, with his mind not turned outwards, reviewing the path gone by and come by.

So caṅkamantopi tabbhāgiyaññeva caṅkamaṃ adhiṭṭhāti.


Ñ: When he walks, he resolves that his walk is oriented towards it;

Nisīdantopi tabbhāgiyaññeva āsanaṃ paññapeti.


Ñ: when he sits, he prepares a seat that is oriented towards it.
