Visuddhimagga VI-76

Lohitakaṃ yuddhamaṇḍalādīsu laddhappahārānaṃ hatthapādādīsu vā chinnesu bhinnagaṇḍapīḷakādīnaṃ vā mukhato paggharamānakāle labbhati.



Ñ(VI,76): The bleeding is found at the time when [blood] is trickling from the openings of wounds received on battlefields, etc., or from the openings of burst boils and abscesses when the hands and feet have been cut off.

Tasmā taṃ disvā ‘‘lohitakapaṭikkūlaṃ lohitakapaṭikkūla’’nti manasikāro pavattetabbo.


Ñ: So on seeing that, it should be brought to mind as 'Repulsiveness of the bleeding, repulsiveness of the bleeding'.

Ettha uggahanimittaṃ vātappahatā viya rattapaṭākā calamānākāraṃ upaṭṭhāti.


Ñ: Here the learning sign appears to have the aspect of moving like a red banner struck by wind;

Paṭibhāganimittaṃ pana sannisinnaṃ hutvā upaṭṭhāti.


Ñ: but the counterpart sign appears quiet.
