9362cetaso = citto ?
- Nov 5, 2005Dear friends
I encounter a problem again, please give help.
In S IV 120 (PTS), the text reads,
upa.t.thitaaya satiyaa ca viharati appamaa.nacetaso...
Ven. Bodhi's translation is
He dwells having set up mindfulness of the body, with
a measureless mind,...
I am counfused by the declension of appamaa.nacetaso,
isn't it genitive or dative? Its case does not agree
with the implied subject, bhikkhu, then why could the
word be translated as 'with a measureless mind'?
While Ven. Buddhaghosa comments the word in quesiton,
upa.t.thitasatitaaya nikkilesacittena appamaa.nacitto
Does this means the commentator equates
appamaa.nacetaso with appamaa.nacitto, so
appamaa.nacetaso is viewed as a word with a nominative
