10: Śraddhāvarga

 

−−⏑−¦−⏑,⏑¦−⏑−−    Triṣṭubh
śraddhātha hrīśīlam athāpi dānaṁ

−−⏑−,¦−⏑⏑¦−⏑−−
dharmā ime satpuruṣapraśastāḥ |

−−⏑−¦−,−¦−⏑−− Formally this could be a case of replacement at the 6th, but I think it is better to read diviyaṁ m.c, with the svarabhakti vowel counted towards the metre.01
etaṁ hi mārgaṁ divyaṁ vadanti

−−−−,¦−⏑⏑¦−⏑−− This line has the Vedic opening discussed in Study 2 on the Metres. AN 8.2.2 (Dānavagga) reads: etena hi gacchati devalokaṁ, which has the normal opening.02
etenāsau gacchati devalokam || 10.1 [216]

 

⏑−⏑−¦−,−⏑−¦−⏑−−    Triṣṭubh This is another example of the extended Triṣṭubh. Dhp 177 shows the same variation.03
na vai kadaryā devalokaṁ vrajanti

−−⏑−,¦−⏑−¦−⏑−−
bālā hi te na praśaṁsanti dānam |

−−⏑−¦−,⏑⏑¦−⏑−−
śrāddhas tu dānaṁ hy anumodamāno

−−⏑−,¦⏑⏑¦−⏑−−
'py evaṁ hy asau bhavati sukhī paratra || 10.2 [217]

 

−−⏑−¦−,⏑⏑¦−⏑−−    Triṣṭubh śr- in śreṣṭhaṁ does not make position here. Sn 182 reads: seṭṭhaṁ.04
śraddhā hi vittaṁ puruṣasya śreṣṭhaṁ

−−⏑−¦−,⏑⏑¦−⏑−−
dharmaḥ sucīrṇaḥ sukham ādadhāti |

−−⏑−,¦−⏑⏑¦−⏑−−
satyaṁ hi vai svādutamaṁ rasānāṁ

−−−−,¦−⏑−¦−⏑−−    Vedic opening Sn 182 has the same opening: paññājīviṁ jīvitam-āhu seṭṭhaṁ.05
prajñājīvī jīvināṁ śreṣṭha uktaḥ || 10.3 [218]

 

−−⏑−¦−⏑−¦¦−−−−¦⏑−⏑− We need to read arahatāṁ m.c. with the svarabhakti vowel being counted towards the metre, giving navipulā. -pr- in nirvāṇaprāptaye does not make position.06
śraddhādhano hy arhatāṁ dharmaṁ nirvāṇaprāptaye |

⏑⏑−⏑¦⏑−−−¦¦−⏑−⏑¦⏑−⏑−
śuśruṣur labhate prajñāṁ tatra tatra vicakṣaṇaḥ || 10.4 [219]

−−⏑−¦−,⏑⏑¦−⏑−    Triṣṭubh
śraddhā dvitīyā puruṣasya bhavati

−−−−¦⏑−⏑−    Siloka S1 200 has the same mix of metres in the first two lines.07

−−−⏑¦⏑−−−¦¦⏑−⏑⏑¦⏑−⏑−
nirvāṇābhirato bhikṣuś chinatti bhavabandhanam || 10.6 [221]

−−−−¦⏑−−−¦¦−−−−¦⏑−⏑−
śrāddho ghṇāti pātheyaṁ puṇyaṁ coraiḥ sudurharam |

−−⏑−¦−,−−¦¦⏑−−⏑¦⏑−⏑−    mavipulā We need to read vāreti to correct the metre here. S1 242 reads: vārenti.08
coraṁ harantaṁ vārayati harantaḥ śramaṇāḥ priyāḥ |

⏑⏑−−¦⏑−−−¦¦⏑⏑−⏑¦⏑−⏑−
śramaṇān āgatāṁ dṣṭvā abhinandati paṇḍitāḥ || 10.11 [226]

−−−−¦⏑−−−¦¦⏑−−−¦⏑−⏑−
śrāddhaṁ prājñaṁ tu seveta hradaṁ yadvaj jalārthikaḥ |

−−⏑−¦−⏑−−¦¦−⏑−⏑¦⏑−⏑−    ravipulā Counting pr- in viprasannaṁ as making position, giving ravipulā, otherwise we have savipulā.09
acchodakaṁ viprasannaṁ śītatoyam anāvilam || 10.15 [230]

 

−⏑−[⏑⏑]¦⏑−−−¦¦−⏑−−¦⏑−⏑− We can either scan this line by removing the Sanskritisation = nānurakta 'ti; or take it that the Sanskritisation is incomplete and read: nānurakteti here; there is no Pāḷi parallel to compare.10
nānurakta iti rajyeta hy atra vai dīryate janaḥ |

−⏑−−¦−⏑−−¦¦⏑−−⏑¦⏑−⏑−    ravipulā
