 THUS HAVE I HEARD
Once the Exalted One was dwelling near Saavatthii.
There the Exalted One addressed the monks, saying:
'Yes, lord,' they replied, and the Exalted One said:
'Monks, there are these three companies.
These are the three companies.'
 Text yaava-t-ajjha viniitaa. Comy. has yaavataa ca viniitaa and explains thus: pamaa.na-vasena viniitaa, pamaa.na.m ~natvaa v., and adds 'but in the Paali it means yaava ajjhaasaye = ajjhaasaya.m ~natvaa.'
