      Dear Yong Peng,
      thank you very much.

      N:sappurisa stands for an ariyan disciple. PTS has for bhumi: condition.

      N: Suggested: Yes lord, those monks assented to the Blessed One.

      > - sant (ppr of atthi) being.

      N: we would expect the ending of -ehi. But sat or sant is very
      -sant means also true. I am inclined to connect asabbhi with
      asappurisa. Asabbhi upa~n~naata.m: it is wellknown with (regard to)
      the non-true ones, that is to say ingratitude...
      PTS translates with: congenial to mean people.
      Only the form sabbhi from sant is not yet clear. Perhaps Jim could help?
