Visuddhimagga XI-125

Evamayaṃ diṭṭhadhammasukhavihārādi pañcavidho samādhibhāvanāya ānisaṃso –


Ñ(XI,125): That is how this benefit of the development of concentration is fivefold as a blissful abiding here and now, and so on.

‘‘Tasmā nekānisaṃsamhi, kilesamalasodhane;

Samādhibhāvanāyoge, nappamajjeyya paṇḍito’’ti.





Ñ: So wise men fail not in devotion

To the pursuit of concentration:

It cleans defiling stains' pollution,

And brings rewards past calculation.
