Visuddhimagga VIII-151

Ayaṃ panettha saṅkhepattho.


Ñ(VIII,151): In brief, however, the meaning here is this:

Bhikkhave, kena pakārena kenākārena kena vidhinā bhāvito ānāpānassatisamādhi kena pakārena bahulīkato santo ceva…pe… vūpasametīti.


Ñ: 'Bhikkhus, in what way, in what manner, by what system, is concentration through mindfulness of breathing developed, in what way is it practised much, that it is both peaceful … as soon as they arise?'.
