Visuddhimagga VIII-250

Cha anussatiyo viya ca ayampi ariyasāvakasseva ijjhati,


Ñ(VIII,250): And as in the case of the six recollections, this also comes to success only in a noble disciple.

evaṃ santepi upasamagarukena puthujjanenāpi manasi kātabbā.


Ñ: Still, though this is so, it can nevertheless also be brought to mind by an ordinary person who values peace.

Sutavasenāpi hi upasame cittaṃ pasīdati.


Ñ: For even by hearsay the mind has confidence in peace.
