Visuddhimagga VI-82



Iti asubhāni subhaguṇo, dasasatalocanena thutakitti;

Yāni avoca dasabalo, ekekajjhānahetunīti.



Ñ(VI,82): The Divine Ruler with ten hundred eyes

Did him with the Ten Powers eulogize,

Who, fair in fame, made known as cause of jhāna

This foulness of ten species in suchwise.

Evaṃ tāni ca tesañca, bhāvanānayamimaṃ viditvāna;

Tesveva ayaṃ bhiyyo, pakiṇṇakakathāpi viññeyyā.



Ñ: Now knowing their description and the way

To tackle each and how they are developed,

There are some further points that will repay

Study, each with its special part to play.
