Visuddhimagga VI-77

Puḷavakaṃ dvīhatīhaccayena kuṇapassa navahi vaṇamukhehi kimirāsipaggharaṇakāle hoti.

(九)(虫聚相)虫聚相即是过了二三天之后的臭尸的九个疮口 [(nava vaṇamukhani),两眼、两耳、两鼻孔、口、大小便道。] 涌出虫堆的时候。


Ñ(VI,77): There is a worm-infested corpse when at the end of two or three days a mass of maggots oozes out from the corpse's nine orifices, and the mass lies there like a heap of paddy or boiled rice as big as the body,

Apica taṃ soṇasiṅgālamanussagomahiṃsahatthiassaajagarādīnaṃ sarīrappamāṇameva hutvā sālibhattarāsi viya tiṭṭhati.


Ñ: whether the body is that of a dog, a jackal, a human being [(manussa)], an ox, a buffalo, an elephant, a horse, a python, or what you will.

Tesu yattha katthaci ‘‘puḷavakapaṭikkūlaṃ puḷavakapaṭikkūla’’nti manasikāro pavattetabbo.


Ñ: It can be brought to mind with respect to any one of these as 'Repulsiveness of the worm-infested, repulsiveness of the worm-infested'.

Cūḷapiṇḍapātikatissattherassa hi kāḷadīghavāpiyā anto hatthikuṇape nimittaṃ upaṭṭhāsi.


Ñ: For the sign arose for the Elder Cūḷa-Piṇḍapātika-Tissa in the corpse of an elephant's carcase in the Kāḷadīghavāpi reservoir.

Uggahanimittaṃ panettha calamānaṃ viya upaṭṭhāti.


Ñ: Here the learning sign appears as though moving;

Paṭibhāganimittaṃ sālibhattapiṇḍo viya sannisinnaṃ hutvā upaṭṭhāti.


Ñ: but the counterpart sign appears quiet, like a ball of boiled rice.
