Visuddhimagga VII-104

Tāniyeva taṇhādāsabyato mocetvā bhujissabhāvakaraṇena bhujissāni.


Ñ(VII,104): Those same virtues are liberating since they liberate by freeing from the slavery of craving.

Buddhādīhi viññūhi pasatthattā viññuppasatthāni.


Ñ: They are praised by the wise because they are praised by such wise men as Enlightened Ones.

Notes in Chinese translation : 「自在」(bhujissa)、「智者所赞」(viññupasatthā),《解脱道论》「自在」「智慧所叹」。

Taṇhādiṭṭhīhi aparāmaṭṭhatāya kenaci vā ayaṃ te sīlesu dosoti evaṃ parāmaṭṭhuṃ asakkuṇeyyatāya aparāmaṭṭhāni.


Ñ: They are not adhered to (aparāmaṭṭha) since they are not adhered to (aparāmaṭṭhattā) with craving and [false] view, or because of the impossibility of misapprehending (parāmaṭṭhuṃ) that 'There is this flaw in your virtues'.

Upacārasamādhiṃ appanāsamādhiṃ vā, atha vā pana maggasamādhiṃ phalasamādhiñcāpi saṃvattentīti samādhisaṃvattanikāni.


Ñ: They are conducive to concentration since they conduce to access concentration and absorption concentration, or to path concentration and fruition concentration.

Notes in Chinese translation : 「无所触」(aparāmaṭṭhā)、「令起于定」(samādhisaṃvattanikā),《解脱道论》「无所触」、「令起定」。
