" 'Decline' (hāna) is to be understood with regard to the arising of opposing qualities, 'standstill' (thiti) with regard to the standstill of the corresponding attentiveness, 'progress' (visesa) with regard to higher excellency, 'penetration' (nibbedha) with regard to the arising of perception and reflection connected with the turning away (from existence)" (Vis.M. III). Cf. vodāna (2).
