[264]

[1] THUS HAVE I HEARD

Once the Exalted One was dwelling near Saavatthii.

There the Exalted One addressed the monks, saying:

'Monks.'

'Yes, lord,' they replied, and the Exalted One said:

'Monks, there are these three companies.

What three?

The company trained in bombast,
the company trained in inquiry,[1]
and the company trained according to its bent.[2]

These are the three companies.'

 


[1] Cf. supra, text 72, where reading is pa.tipucchaa.

[2] 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.'
