Visuddhimagga IX-21

Imassa ca atthassa āvibhāvatthaṃ – ‘‘pañcime, āvuso, āghātapaṭivinayā. Yattha bhikkhuno uppanno āghāto sabbaso paṭivinodetabbo’’ti (a. ni. 5.162) idaṃ pañcakanipāte āghātapaṭivinayasuttaṃ vitthāretabbaṃ.


Ñ(IX,21): And in order to make the meaning of this clear the following sutta from the Book of Fives should be cited in full: 'Bhikkhus, there are five ways of dispelling annoyance whereby annoyance arisen in a bhikkhu can be entirely dispelled' (A.iii, 186-90).
