Visuddhimagga X-59

290. Evaṃ santepi –


Ñ(X,59): That being so:

Suppaṇītatarā honti, pacchimā pacchimā idha;

Upamā tattha viññeyyā, pāsādatalasāṭikā.



Ñ: They progress in refinement; each

Is finer than the one before.

Two figures help to make them known:

The cloth lengths, and each palace floor.
