⏑−⏑−¦−⏑⏑−¦¦−⏑⏑−¦⏑−⏑−    bhavipulā Line b has light syllables in 2nd & 3rd positions. Ja 538.106 reads: yaṁ yadevūpaviyyati, which avoids the opening.06

−−⏑⏑¦⏑−−−¦¦−−−−¦⏑−⏑− Note that bhavati must be read as three syllables here, although the parallel at Ja 538.106 reads: appakaṁ hoti vetabbaṁ.07

−−⏑−¦−,⏑−¦−⏑−⏑−    Jagatī The 1st line here is in Jagatī metre, the others are in Triṣṭubh. We should understand pr- as not making position in the 2nd line, and read gamiṣyantĭ m.c. to avoid the break −−⏑, though in Pāḷi that break is found occasionally, usually after a word-break at the 5th, as here.09
