Hi Peter, Dimitry,
Thanks for both your replies. Actually after I sent off the post I
looked up byaa as vyaa and managed to locate vyaakaroti as the root
verb for byaakata. Thanks Peter for your literal translation. I
have been trying to do just that with the suttas I try to translate,
before checking with Bhikkhu Bodhi's more idiomatic translation.
