Visuddhimagga VI-75

Hatavikkhittakampi vicchiddake vuttappakāresuyeva ṭhānesu labbhati.



Ñ(VI,75): The hacked and scattered is found in the same places as those described under the cut up.

Tasmā tattha gantvā vuttanayeneva aṅgulaṅgulantaraṃ kāretvā vā katvā vā ‘‘hatavikkhittakapaṭikkūlaṃ hatavikkhittakapaṭikkūla’’nti manasikāro pavattetabbo.


Ñ: Therefore, after going there and getting it 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 hacked and scattered, repulsiveness of the hacked and scattered'.

Uggahanimittaṃ panettha paññāyamānaṃ pahāramukhaṃ viya hoti.


Ñ: Here, when the learning sign becomes evident, it does so with the fissures of the wounds;

Paṭibhāganimittaṃ paripuṇṇameva hutvā upaṭṭhāti.


Ñ: but the counterpart sign appears whole.
