Visuddhimagga XIII-80

Imassa visuṃ parikammaṃ nāma natthi, yathā cimassa, evaṃ anāgataṃsañāṇassāpi.
Ñ(XIII,80): There is no special preliminary work for this. And as in this case, so too in the case of knowledge of the future;

Dibbacakkhupādakāneva hi imāni dibbacakkhunā saheva ijjhanti.
Ñ: for these have the divine eye as their basis and their success is dependent on that of the divine eye. [425]
