Visuddhimagga VI-40

Okāsato pana imasmiṃ nāma okāse hatthā, imasmiṃ pādā, imasmiṃ sīsaṃ, imasmiṃ majjhimakāyo ṭhitoti vavatthapetabbaṃ.


Ñ(VI,40): (5) He should define it by its location thus: 'The hand is in this location, the foot in this, the head in this, the middle of the body in this'.

Atha vā ahaṃ imasmiṃ okāse ṭhito asubhanimittaṃ imasminti vavatthapetabbaṃ.


Ñ: Or alternatively, he can define it thus: 'I am in this location; the sign of foulness is in that'.
