"When one thing is practiced & pursued, ignorance is abandoned, clear knowing arises, the conceit 'I am' is abandoned, latent tendencies are uprooted, fetters are abandoned. Which one thing? Mindfulness immersed in the body." -AN 1.230

Stage VII (Second Tetrad) and mental formation definition is explained on page 432-445 versus Stage IX (Third Tetrad) page 454-465 of http://www.buddhanet.net/pdf_file/anapanasati.pdf

The analysis is quite extensive but the general sense is that the mental formation (perception and feeling) in the Second Tetrad is what conditions the mind (in the Third Tetrad). However, "the meditator who has reached the present Ninth Stage should note the state of the mind while practising each of the preceding eight stages. He has to begin anew from the very First Stage and successively proceed to the Eighth Stage, noting in each the state fo the mind." (page 459)
