Visuddhimagga XIV-230

Evaṃ mahānisaṃsaṃ, vadhakādivasena dassanaṃ yasmā;
Tasmā khandhe dhīro, vadhakādivasena passeyyāti.
Ñ(XIV,230): Such blessings there will be
From seeing them as murderers and otherwise,
Therefore the wise should see
The aggregates as murderers and otherwise.

Iti sādhujanapāmojjatthāya kate visuddhimagge
Khandhaniddeso nāma
Cuddasamo paricchedo.

Ñ: The fourteenth chapter called 'The Description of the Aggregates' in the Treatise on the Development of Understanding in the Path of Purification composed for the purpose of gladdening good people.
