Visuddhimagga XII-130

Kāyavasena cittaṃ pariṇāmetīti karajakāyassa vasena cittaṃ pariṇāmeti. Pādakajjhānacittaṃ gahetvā kāye āropeti. Kāyānugatikaṃ karoti dandhagamanaṃ. Kāyagamanaṃ hi dandhaṃ hoti.


Ñ(XII,130): He converts his mind according to his body: he converts the mind to accord with the material body; taking the consciousness of the basic jhāna, he mounts it upon the body, he makes its going slow to coincide with that of the body; for the body's mode of going is slow.
