Ñ(XIV,19): 10. In the fourth triad, insight-understanding initiated by apprehending one's own aggregates is interpreting the internal.

Ñ: That initiated by apprehending another's aggregates or external materiality not bound up with the faculties, [that is, inanimate matter], is interpreting the external.

Ubhayaṃ gahetvā āraddhā ajjhattabahiddhābhinivesāti
Ñ: That initiated by apprehending both is interpreting the internal and external.

evaṃ ajjhattābhinivesādivasena tividhā.
