The Visuddhimagga says: ‘One man comprehends formations as
impermanent at the start. But emergence does not come about
through merely comprehending them as impermanent, since there
must be comprehension of them as suffering and non-self too, so
he comprehends them as suffering and non-self.’ (Vsm. XXI, 88)
This shows that by comprehending impermanence only, suf-
fering only, or non-self only one cannot attain the noble paths
(ariyamagga), but only by comprehending each of the three
characteristics alternately, will a meditator be able to reach the
noble paths.
