Re: [Pali] Re: Meaning of Dhamma 1.
- Dear Yong Peng and Jim,
Thank you very much, Jim, and I shall put these texts at the end. Meanwhile,
I shall try to translate them.
But there are also 23 meanings:
gu.na.m, desanaa, pariyatti/paavacana.m,
nissatta.m/nissattataa/nijjiivataa, sacca.m, sabhaavo, samaadhi,
pa~n~naa, pakati, pu~n~na.m, aapatti, ~neyya.m, pa~n~natti, vikaaro,
hetu/paccayo, paccayuppanna.m, yutti, visayo, nibbaana.m, maggo,
jaati, mana.m, bhaavo.
As to the stem of dhammo: PED gives some info: dh.r: to hold. I heard the
explanation: it bears its own characteristic. But I have not much info.
