Ñ: his mind has rectitude on that occasion, being inspired by generosity' (A.iii,287).So when he has suppressed the hindrances in the way already described (§66), the jhāna factors arise in a single conscious moment.

Ñ: But owing to the profundity of the generosity's special qualities, or owing to his being occupied in recollecting the generosity's special qualities of many sorts, the jhāna is only access and does not reach absorption.

Ñ: And that access jhāna itself is known as 'recollection of generosity' too because it arises with the generosity's special qualities as the means.
