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
. 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.
