Taṃ viññāṇaṃ amanasikaritvā ‘‘natthi natthī’’ti vā, ‘‘suññaṃ suñña’’nti vā, ‘‘vivittaṃ vivitta’’nti vā punappunaṃ āvajjitabbaṃ, manasikātabbaṃ, paccavekkhitabbaṃ, takkāhataṃ vitakkāhataṃ kātabbaṃ.


Ñ(X,33): Without giving [further] attention to that consciousness, he should [now] advert again and again in this way, 'there is not, there is not', or 'void, void', or 'secluded, secluded', and give his attention to it, review it, and strike at it with thought and applied thought.
