Tayo ca suttantāti adhicittaṃ, sītibhāvo, bojjhaṅgakosallanti ime tayo suttantā vīriyasamādhiyojanatthaṃ veditabbāti ayamettha adhippāyo.


Ñ(VIII,73): 8-10. As to the three suttantas: the intention here is this: it should be understood that the three suttantas, namely, those on higher consciousness, on coolness, and on skill in the enlightenment factors, have as their purpose the linking of energy with concentration.
