      Dear Nathalie,

      Nina: Jim, a Pali scholar on our list, wrote to me:
      <I was looking into Natalie's question about 'yena saalaa tena...'
      to Sp I 128, there is another interpretation besides yattha saalaa
      tattha. .
      . that could apply, i.e., yena kaara.nena saalaa upasa"nkamitabbaa, tena
      kaara.nena upasa"nkami.msu = lit. for whatever reason the hall is to be
      gone to, for that reason they went.>
      Sp. is Saaratthappakaasinii, the Co. to the Kindred Sayings.

      upasa"nkamitabbaa is a passive form, note the ending: abbaa. Thus,
      the subject of it is nominative. kaara.na is reason or cause.
