      Dear friedns,

      Dhamma greetings.
      i'm a beginner in learning Pali, although enrolled in this group for
      quite a while. Recently i started reading the metta sutta and found
      two questions as below. Could someone please kindly explain and
      thanks in advance.
      1.
      ...
      bhuuta vaa sambhavesii va
      sabbasatta bhavantu sukhitataa.

      ---- what's the explanation here about "sambhavesii"? From my
      knowledge, the Theravada tradition did not believe there is a gap or
      some exsitence inbetween two lives.
