implying here as "strong word", I consider "clinging
to regional language and rejecting common usage." I'd
be very curious to know exactly the "strength" of the
pali regional term the buddha uses in the sutta.
Perhaps the pali term was equivalent to my regional
version. Also note that "strength" is a completely
relative concept. In the company of the Queen of
England, even the regional terms you may consider
acceptable might be to her "too strong".
In the context of this company, meaning the Pali
group, I would hope that we are all cultivators. As
such, my operating assumption has been that there is
little if any clinging to "regional
language/colloquialism" among the people here.
However, if I am too presumptuous, then I heartily
I'd especially like to apologize to the fecal matter
that I had insensitively referred to in the tongue of
my regional language, which Mr. fecal matter has
informed me the politically correct term for his
people is "turd". It should be noted that as a result
of the great Turd war of 1850, the rival "Poo-poo"
clan had their regional title stripped, and is no
longer "recognized" by most other countries with the
notable exception of the Nation of Crap. In diplomatic
relations, the Queen of England refer to the
ambassador of Turd respectfully as "Number Two".
