Visuddhimagga XI-80

342. Muttaṃ vatthissa abbhantare ṭhitaṃ.


Ñ(XI,80): Urine is to be found inside the bladder.

Tattha yathā candanikāya pakkhitte amukhe ravaṇaghaṭe na ravaṇaghaṭo jānāti mayi candanikāraso ṭhitoti.


Ñ: Herein, just as, when a porous pot is put upside down in a cesspool, the porous pot does not know 'Cesspool filtrate is in me',

Notes in Chinese translation: 底本二四六页用无口(amukhe),这里用口向下(adhamukhe)。

Napi candanikāraso jānāti ahaṃ ravaṇaghaṭe ṭhitoti,


Ñ: nor does the cesspool filtrate know 'I am in a porous pot',

evameva na vatthi jānāti mayi muttaṃ ṭhitanti.

同样的,膀胱不知「尿在我中」,[PTS 363]

Ñ: so too, the bladder does not know [363] 'Urine is in me',

Napi muttaṃ jānāti ahaṃ vatthimhi ṭhitanti.


Ñ: nor does the urine know 'I am in a bladder'.

Aññamaññaṃ ābhogapaccavekkhaṇarahitā ete dhammā.


Ñ: These things are devoid of mutual concern and reviewing.

Iti muttaṃ nāma imasmiṃ sarīre pāṭiyekko koṭṭhāso acetano abyākato suñño nissatto yūsabhūto ābandhanākāro āpodhātūti.


Ñ: So what is called urine is a particular component of this body, without thought, indeterminate, void, not a living being, liquid water element in the mode of cohesion.
