      What I mean is if is available this passage in pali transliterated
      somewhere?
      -------
      N: I only have the English: Minor readings and Illustrator, P.T.S.
      Thus, this is the Khuddakapaa.tha and Commentary.
      It is taken from the first sutta: the Three Refuges.
      Thank you for your analysis, giving different languages.
      You write: <If you ask a Sanskrit pandit what this means, he will
      probably refer you to
      the Paniniya-dhatu-kosa, which gives a one-word meaning for each verb
      root.
      For �buddh�, it gives �avagamana�. The basic meaning of avagamana is
      �realization�. >
      Very interesting. I read in the Commentary to the Khuddakapaa.tha : <
      And as to this quotation, [the active and middle voice usage] 'he is
      the discoverer of the Truths, thus he is enlightened [bujjhitaa
      saccanii ti buddho]' is stated in the same way as in the world
      [outside the Dispensation] a 'descender into
      (understander)' (avagantaa) is called a 'descended one
      (understood)' (avagato)....>
      Perhaps you can find the complete Pali text on metta net? Under
      Khuddakapaa.tha ?

      Nina.
