Visuddhimagga XIV-157

Paṭhame vuttesu ṭhapetvā viratittayaṃ sesā rūpāvacarakusalesu paṭhamena sampayogaṃ gacchanti.
Ñ(XIV,157): (9)-(13) All those stated in the first instance, except the three abstinences (xxxiv-xxxvi), come into association with the first of the fine-material profitable [kinds of consciousness] (9).
Notes in Chinese translation: 因为入禅者的身语意本已清净,不致于犯身语意的三种恶行,所以色界善心不必有离三恶行。

Dutiyena tato vitakkavajjā. Tatiyena tato vicāravajjā. Catutthena tato pītivajjā. Pañcamena tato aniyatesu karuṇāmuditāvajjā.
Ñ: With the second (10) applied thought (iii) is also lacking. With the third (11) sustained thought (iv) is also lacking. With the fourth (12) happiness (v) is also lacking. With the fifth (13) compassion (xxxii) and gladness (xxxiii), among the inconstant, are also lacking.

Teyeva catūsu āruppakusalesu. Arūpāvacarabhāvoyeva hi ettha viseso.
Ñ: (14)-(17) In the case of the four kinds of immaterial [profitable consciousness] these are the same as the last-mentioned, for it is only the immaterialness that is the difference here.
