[1] Yoniso mana-sikaro. 'to-the-womb mind-study'. Tracing things back to their place of conception. Both for the knowledge of how they began, but also of how they develop. When applied to unskillful things, to uproot them without possibility of reappearance; when applied to skillful things to understand the best way to develop them. 'Studious etiologiical examination.'
