  •  "at the moment of conception" = patisandhikkhane
  • "applied thought" = vitakke [he gives translations in this volume!
  • "sustained thougt" = vicaram? (savitakka-savicaram)
  • "offering" = dana
  • "precepts"=sila
  • "observance"=uposathakamma
  • "path"=magga
  • "fruition"=phala
  • "kilese"=defilements= sanskrit klesa or Klisa?
  • "lust"=rago?
  • "grief"=domanassa
  • "penetration into others' minds"=cetopariyanana
  • "Infinity of Space"=akasanancayatana
  • "Infinitey of Consciousness"= vinnanancayatana
  • "Nothingness" = akincannayatana

  • "supranormal powers" = iddhividhanana
  • This one confuses me:  "Nibbhana is related to 'change-of-lineage' (gotrabhu), purification (vodana), Path with applied thought and sustained thought, fruition, mind-door advertence (avajjana) by object condition."(62) What is the change-of-lineage?
  • [looking at all the pages...]
  • [there is a simple failure to extract the principle, the schema, from the system in the primary text.  They have developed a database and table, and left the principle for the reader to figure out]
  • limited is opposed to lofty...
  • "low" is the same as "corrupt" chapter (424)
  • ...ooohhh I found a stain in the book.  Someone may have passed this way before me!  Tho' it is awfully crisp still...

okay, I looked at all 567 pages.  CAn I go NOw?
