2675Re: [Pali] More Pali - Every few days - [C007]bhavo
- Jun 1, 2003Dear Jim,
Thank you very much for the trouble you took. I had no idea about all the
different meanings of bhavo. I read this with great interest, I am delighted
to learn more about different word meanings. I saw in my Pali Thai
dictionary also some more meanings; good quality, khandha, etc. As to
vuddhi: this makes sense: growth and prosperity.
The Abhidhaanappadiipikaa from the 16th cent. seems most interesting.
