      Thank you, I would like to learn more about pubbakiriya.

      In Russian beside participles there is a special class of forms called
      'adverbial participles' (deeprichastiya), with '-av' ending for past and
      '-aya' for present, which closely correspond to Pali '-tva' and '-aya' forms.

      So please write whether '-aya' forms express past or present, so that
      I will be able to make exact translations.
