Visuddhimagga XIV-105

Lokuttaravipākaṃ catumaggayuttacittaphalattā catubbidhaṃ, taṃ maggavīthivasena ceva samāpattivasena ca dvidhā pavattati.
Ñ(XIV,105): III. i. D. The supramundane resultant is of four kinds (66)-(69) because it is [respectively] the fruitions of the consciousnesses associated with the four paths (18)-(21). It occurs in two ways, that is to say, as [fruition in] the cognitive series of the path and as fruition attainment (see Ch. XXII).

Evaṃ sabbampi catūsu bhūmīsu chattiṃsavidhaṃ vipākaviññāṇaṃ hoti.
Ñ: So resultant consciousness in all the four planes is of thirty-six kinds.
