By Mahathera Ledi Sayadaw, Aggamahapandita, D.Litt.
Translated into English by Sayadaw U Nyana, Patamagyaw of Masoeyein Monastery Mandalay
22. Natthi-Paccaya or the Relation of Abeyance
23. Vigata-Paccaya or the Relation of Absence
24. Avigata-Paccaya or the Relation of Continuance
The relation of absence is entirely the relation of contiguity; so is the relation of abeyance. The relation of continuance is also the same as the relation of presence. The words "atthi" and "avigata" have the same meaning; so also the words "natthi" and "vigata".
End of the Natthi-, the Vigata-, and the Avigata-Relation.
