3-10: Lokavolokanasuttaṁ (30)

1. evaṁ me sutaṁ:
ekaṁ samayaṁ bhagavā uruvelāyaṁ viharati, najjā nerañjarāya tīre Editor's note: BJT, tire - printer's error.01 bodhirukkhamūle paṭhamābhisambuddho. tena kho pana samayena bhagavā sattāhaṁ ekapallaṅkena nisinno hoti vimuttisukhapaṭisaṁvedī.

2. atha kho bhagavā tassa sattāhassa accayena, tamhā samādhimhā vuṭṭhahitvā buddhacakkhunā lokaṁ volokesi. addasā kho bhagavā buddhacakkhunā lokaṁ volokento satte anekehi santāpehi santappamāne, anekehi ca pariḷāhehi pariḍayhamāne, rāgajehi pi dosajehi pi mohajehi pī BJT: pi - printer's error.02 ti.

3. atha kho bhagavā etam-atthaṁ viditvā, tāyaṁ velāyaṁ imaṁ udānaṁ udānesi: BJT lays out the following udāna as though it were all in verse. However as it appears that most of it is prose, the material as presented here has been re-arranged accordingly (some of the material in this Udāna I owe to suggestions made to me by Prof. K. R. Norman, in private correspondence).03

“ayaṁ loko santāpajāto phassapareto

−−⏑⏑¦⏑−⏑−   Anuṭṭhubha
rogaṁ vadati attato, Metre: abc are in Anuṭṭhubha metre (or in Siloka with an Anuṭṭhubha variation). They appear to be the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th lines of a verse, which gives rise to a strong expectation that the opening line of the Udāna should be in the same metre, but as it stands it is not possible to make the line scan.04

⏑⏑−−¦⏑−⏑−   Anuṭṭhubha Metre: Again we have what seem to be 3 lines in Anuṭṭhubha metre, though the lines that precede and follow cannot be made to scan as they stand. In the last of these lines we need to read dukhaṁ for the line to scan correctly.05
