      Pali - Every few days - [C247]
      Warder - Exercise 21 (page 176)
      Passages for Reading 2 (Part 7 of 41)

      yathaa yathaa kho te Vaase.t.thaa sattaa
      bhuumi-pappa.taka.m paribhu~njantaa ta.m-bhakkhaa
      tad-aahaaraa cira.m diigha.m addhaana.m a.t.tha.msu,
      in as much as / indeed / these / Vasettha (and
      Bharadvaja) / beings / earth-fungus / relishing /
      this-feeding on / that-food / for a long time / long
      period / they remained
      And, Vasettha and Bharadvaja, as these beings remained
      relishing this earth-fungus and feeding on it as their
      food for a very long time,

      tathaa tathaa tesa.m sattaana.m bhiyyoso mattaaya
      kharatta~n cÂ’eva kaayasmi.m okkami,
      va.n.na-veva.n.nataa ca pa~n~naayittha.
      just so / to these / to the beings / more / by measure
      / roughness / and / just / in the body / developed /
      colour-discolouration / and / were discerned
      thus an even greater measure of coarseness developed
      in their bodies and good and bad-looking appeared.

      Metta, John
