−−−−¦−,−−−¦¦−−−−¦⏑−⏑−    mavipulā Mavipulā normally has a short 3rd syllable, so we should perhaps read eko 'smi' loke here m.c. MN.26 (Ariyapariyesanasutta) reads: sadevakasmiṁ lokasmiṁ, which has the correct opening.01
eko 'smiṁ loke saṁbuddhaḥ prāptaḥ saṁbodhim uttamām || 21.4 [443]

−⏑−−⏑¦−⏑−−¦¦−−−⏑¦⏑−⏑−    9 syllables The odd line here has 9 syllables. M.26 reads: Dhammacakkaṁ pavattetuṁ, which gives Pathyā.02
dharmacakraṁ pravartayiṣye lokeṣv aprativartitam || 21.6 [445]

 

⏑⏑−−¦⏑−−−¦¦⏑−−−¦⏑−−− The cadence is incorrect here, we need to read lokaparyayam m.c. The line occasionally occurs in Pāḷi (SN1.111; Sn 586) as viditvā lokapariyāyaṁ, which is also incorrect.03
na hi santaḥ prakāśyante viditvā lokaparyāyam |
