Mahāparinibbānasuttaṁ (DN 16)

[Tatiyabhāṇavāraṁ]

[24: Rājagahe Ānandassa Aparaddhaṁ]

Ekam-idāhaṁ Ānanda samayaṁ Rājagahe Most editions write out the first section (Gijjakūṭe) in full, then the next section (Gotamanigrodhe) as ellipsis, and the rest without ellipsis. When we get to the repetition though, just below, it appears that it is summarising the whole sequence at one go, which implies that the way I have edited it here must be correct. The same applies to the Vesālī section below.01 viharāmi Gijjhakūṭe pabbate, tattheva Rājagahe viharāmi Gotamanigrodhe, PTS: Nigrodhārāme, but below it writes Gotamanigrodhe.02 tattheva Rājagahe viharāmi Corapapāte, Thai: Corappapāte, and similarly below. This form shows gemination.03 tattheva Rājagahe viharāmi Vebhārapasse Sattapaṇṇiguhāyaṁ, Thai, Chs: Sattapaṇṇa-, and similarly throughout. CPED: Sattapaṇṇī, m., the tree Alstonia Scholaris. Paṇṇa also = leaf.04 tattheva Rājagahe viharāmi Isigilipasse Kāḷasilāyaṁ, tattheva Rājagahe viharāmi Sītavane Sappasoṇḍikapabbhāre, tattheva Rājagahe viharāmi Tapodārāme, tattheva Rājagahe viharāmi Veḷuvane Kalandakanivāpe, tattheva Rājagahe viharāmi Jīvakambavane, tattheva Rājagahe viharāmi Maddakucchismiṁ Migadāye. Tatra pi kho tāhaṁ Ānanda āmantesiṁ: [437]

‘Ramaṇīyaṁ Ānanda Rājagahaṁ ramaṇīyo Gijjhakūṭo pabbato, ramaṇīyo Gotamanigrodho, ramaṇīyo Corapapāto, ramaṇīyā Vebhārapasse Sattapaṇṇiguhā, ramaṇīyā Isigilipasse Kāḷasilā, ramaṇīyo Sītavane Sappasoṇḍikapabbhāro, ramaṇīyo Tapodārāmo, ramaṇīyo Veḷuvane Kalandakanivāpo, Thai: Veḷuvanakalandakanivāpo, compound form of words in the text.05 ramaṇīyaṁ Jīvakambavanaṁ, ramaṇīyo Maddakucchismiṁ Migadāyo. Thai: Maddakucchimigadāyo, compound form of words in the text. BJT and PTS mark these last few lines as a repetition passage, but neither Thai nor ChS do, and it seems from the context that it is not.06 Yassa kassaci Ānanda cattāro iddhipādā bhāvitā, bahulīkatā yānīkatā vatthukatā anuṭṭhitā paricitā susamāraddhā, so ākaṅkhamāno kappaṁ vā tiṭṭheyya kappāvasesaṁ BJT: kappaṁ vasesaṁ, printing error.07 vā.
