Evamassa paṭhamajjhānapaṭibimbabhūtaṃ upacārajjhānampi taṅkhaṇaññeva nibbattati.


Ñ(VI,68): Thus access, which is the obverse of the first jhāna, is produced in him too at that same moment.

Ito paraṃ yāva paṭhamajjhānassa appanā ceva vasippatti ca, tāva sabbaṃ pathavīkasiṇe vuttanayeneva veditabbaṃ.


Ñ: All after that up to absorption in the first jhāna and mastery in it should be understood as described under the earth kasiṇa.
