'karmically acquired corporeality', or 'matter clung-to (by karma)', is identical with karma-produced corporeality (kammaja-rūpa; s. samutthāna).

In Vis.M. XIV it is said: "That corporeality which, later on, we shall refer to as 'karma-produced' (kammaja), is, for its being dependent on previous (pre-natal) karma, called 'karmically acquired'.

The term (upādinna) occurs so in the suttas, e.g. M.28 (WHEEL 101), 62, 140.

See Dhs. §990; Khandha Vibh.
