Visuddhimagga XIII-21

Imasmiṃ pana adhikāre sāvakānaṃ pubbenivāsānussaraṇaṃ adhippetaṃ.


Ñ(XIII,21): In this connexion it is the disciples' recollection of past life that is intended.

Tena vuttaṃ ‘‘anussaratīti khandhapaṭipāṭivasena cutipaṭisandhivasena vā anugantvā anugantvā saratī’’ti.


Ñ: Hence it was said above: ' "He recollects": he recollects it following it out by the succession of aggregates, or by death and rebirth-linking' (§14).
