−−−−,¦−⏑−¦−⏑−−    Vedic opening The same opening occurs in Jātaka 466.12, which reads: mā maṁ kiccaṁ kiccakāle byadhesi. In line d, which is defective in the Sanskrit version, the Pāḷi reads: na taṁ kiccaṁ kiccakāle byadhe, which again gives the Vedic opening.01

⏑⏑−⏑−¦⏑−−−¦¦⏑−⏑⏑¦⏑−⏑−    9 syllables The 1st syllable is not resolved here as that would go against the rule of resolution, rather we have to understand incomplete Sanskritisation sa + imāṁ should give semāṁ. cf. Sn 768c: somaṁ (so + imaṁ) visattikaṁ loke. Same in 338 & 340 below.03

−−⏑⏑¦⏑−−−¦¦−−⏑¦⏑−⏑− Reading -dv- in vigatadveṣebhyo as not making position to give the pathyā cadence, which seems preferable to reading mavipulā with an unexpected short 4th syllable in the opening; cf. the verses that follow. Dhp 357 reads: tasmā hi vītadosesu, which gives pathyā.05

−⏑⏑⏑¦⏑−−−¦¦−⏑−−¦⏑−⏑− The opening of this line with 2 light syllables in 2nd and 3rd positions is unusual. There is no parallel to compare here.06

⏑⏑−−¦⏑,−−−¦¦−⏑−⏑¦⏑−⏑− Reading -pr- in asthiprākāraṁ as not making position, giving the pathyā opening; Dhp 150: aṭṭhīnaṁ nagaraṁ kataṁ, is an Anuṭṭhubha verse, which is a rarity in the Pāḷi Canon.07

−⏑−−¦⏑−−−¦¦−−−−¦⏑−⏑− Reading dv- in dveṣaś as not making position, giving the pathyā cadence, which is preferable to reading mavipulā with a faulty opening.08
