Visuddhimagga VI-74

Vikkhittakampi vicchiddake vuttanayeneva aṅgulaṅgulantaraṃ kāretvā vā katvā vā ‘‘vikkhittakapaṭikkūlaṃ vikkhittakapaṭikkūla’’nti manasikāro pavattetabbo.



Ñ(VI,74): After getting the scattered put together or putting it together in the way described under the cut up so that there is only a finger's breadth separating [the pieces], it should be brought to mind as 'Repulsiveness of the scattered, repulsiveness of the scattered'.

Ettha uggahanimittaṃ pākaṭantaraṃ hutvā upaṭṭhāti.


Ñ: Here the learning sign appears with the gaps evident;

Paṭibhāganimittaṃ pana paripuṇṇaṃva hutvā upaṭṭhāti.


Ñ: but the counterpart sign appears whole.
