Visuddhimagga VI-66

117. Tassevaṃ karoto paṭibhāganimittaṃ uppajjati.


Ñ(VI,66): As he does so, the counterpart sign arises.

Tatridaṃ nimittadvayassa nānākaraṇaṃ, uggahanimittaṃ virūpaṃ bībhacchaṃ bheravadassanaṃ hutvā upaṭṭhāti.


Ñ: Here is the difference between the two signs. The learning sign appears as a hideous, dreadful and frightening sight;

Paṭibhāganimittaṃ pana yāvadatthaṃ bhuñjitvā nipanno thūlaṅgapaccaṅgapuriso viya.


Ñ: but the counterpart sign appears like a man with big limbs lying down after eating his fill.
