Please explain what "triple root-cause” means in the reading below.
I've not come across it until now, thank you.
PATH OF PURIFICATION Part 1: Virtue (Sěla)
“When a wise man, established well in virtue,
Develops consciousness and understanding,
Then as a bhikkhu ardent and sagacious
He succeeds in disentangling this tangle” (S I 13).
7. Here is a brief commentary [on the stanza]. Established well in virtue: standing
on virtue. It is only one actually fulfilling virtue who is here said to “stand on
virtue.” So the meaning here is this: being established well in virtue by fulfilling
virtue. A man: a living being. Wise: possessing the kind of understanding that is born of kamma by means of a rebirth-linking with triple root-cause.
What is “triple root-cause” please?
According to Visuddhi-magga
