Here ends the Tkousand-sutta of the Section of Ones.

 


[179] In MSS. and Comy. this forms part of Chap. XX.

[180] Cetasā phuto (from pharati), lit. 'is pervaded by mind,' clairvoyantly acc. to Comy.

[181] Cf. A. iii, 334. There are six — viz., Consciousness of impermanence, of the Ill therein, of the non-self in Ill, of abandoning, revulsion, cessation. Cf. Buddh. Psych. Eth. 338 n. (Vijjābhāgiyā is like pakkhiyā with bodhi-).

[182] Yoga-khema. Cf. K.S. ii, 132: iv, 51. Comy. calls it 'the fruit's of the life of a recluse.'

[183] Asmi-māna.

[184] Anuaayā. Of varying number, but in A. iv, seven (as Comy. here notes). Cf. K.S. iv, 13.

[185] Paṭisambhidā.

[186] These qualities are applied in full to Sāriputta, K.S. i, 87, 88 n.; Cf. Pts. ii, 189 ff.; K.S. v, 351.

[187] Asāmanta. B. MSS. have asampatta. Comy. does not notice it, but Pts. ii, 189 has assāmanta (? for appamatta; MSS. asamatta).

[188] Bhūri, cf. K.S. iv, 121.

[189] Lahu.

[190] Amataŋ paribhuñjanti. Cf. Pts. of Contr. 107.
