Okāsavasena cāpi niraye dukkhā oḷārikā. Tiracchānayoniyaṃ sukhumā…pe… paranimmitavasavattīsu sukhumāva.
Ñ(XIV,207): Then according to location, painful feelings in hell are gross, while in the animal generation they are subtle. … Those among the Paranimmitavasavatti Deities are subtle only.

Yathā ca dukkhā, evaṃ sukhāpi sabbattha yathānurūpaṃ yojetabbā.
Ñ: And the pleasant should be construed throughout like the painful where suitable.
