−⏑−−¦⏑−−−¦¦−⏑−[⏑⏑]¦⏑−⏑− We should either read bhavyarūpa 'va or bhavyarūpeva m.c. Udāna 7.10 reads: bhabbarūpo va dissati.02

⏑−,¦−⏑⏑¦−⏑−−    Triṣṭubh x 3 We need to read adhyositā here for the metre to be correct. There is no direct parallel to this line at Udāna 6.6 (which is parallel to the rest of the verse), but the Pāḷi equivalent to adhyavasitā is ajjhositā. We need to read pr- in prajāḥ as not making position to avoid the long 6th syllable. Udāna 6.6 omits this line (leaving a 3 line verse).03
