⏑−⏑−¦−−−−¦¦−−−−¦⏑−⏑−    mavipulā We should probably read -vr- in pravrajyā as not making position to give the pathyā cadence here. I cannot find a parallel in Pāḷi for this line.01

⏑⏑⏑−¦⏑,−−−¦¦⏑−−⏑¦⏑−⏑− Line a has light syllables in 2nd & 3rd position; the parallel at Th 500 reads: sabbaṁ suṇāti sotena. I read śr- in śroteṇa here as not making position, giving the pathyā cadence as in the Pāḷi. If it fails we would have a mavipulā with an abnormal opening.03

⏑−⏑−¦−⏑,⏑¦−⏑−− In medial position śr- in -śrutaṁ usually makes position, but a heavy 6th syllable in normally avoided. There are exceptions to this in Pāḷi, where it seems that if there is a word break after the 5th, a heavy 6th is sometimes tolerated, but that is not the case here. In the parallel at Sn 329 this line does not occur.04
