Ñ(XIV,148): (xxiv)-(xxv) The proficient state of the [mental] body is proficiency of body. The proficient state of consciousness is proficiency of consciousness. They have the characteristic of healthiness of the [mental] body and of consciousness. Their function is to crush unhealthiness of the [mental] body and of consciousness. They are manifested as absence of disability. Their proximate cause is the [mental] body and consciousness. They should be regarded as opposed to faithlessness, etc., which cause unhealthiness in the [mental] body and in consciousness.
