The Introduction to Conditional Relations Vol. I (C.R. I) gives (1) a brief account of the methods and how to apply them in order to arrive at the answers in the 7 Chapters of the Faultless Triplet Patthana section; (2) the states of the other 4 Triplets also dealt with therein;(3) a general idea of the remaining 23 Pa^^anas which make up the last 3 of the 5 volumes of Patthana. Also, it states that the remaining 17 Triplets, like the Clinging and Corrupt Triplets of Vol. I, are treated very briefly in Vol. II, the present volume. This completes the Triplet Patthana, the first of the 6 Patthanas in the Positive Method Division.

Among the Triplets in Vol. II, the Applied Thought Triplet not only includes many states but they are also compUcated and difficult to understand. With regard to all the 6 Chapters of each Triplet in this volume, it will be found that in the Enumeration Chapters (1) of the Positive and Negative conditions, in most cases only “By Ones” are given and (2) of the Positive-Negative and Negative-Positive conditions, only “By Twos” are given. As for “By Threes” , “By Fours” and so on, it is directed that they be worked out according to the method given in the Faultless Triplet.

As for the Investigation Chapters, it wiU be found that, as in the preceding 6 Chapters, only “By Ones” and “By Twos” are given and the reader is then directed to “Enumerate the enumerations of Investigation Chapter without confusion” and so forth in order to obtain the rest. And it is
only in the last Triplet, the Visible and Impinging Triplet, that the common of root condition and one ordinary combination are given. The rest of the commons, combinations and others are not given for any Triplet but it is directed that they be found in order to know them in detail.
