          N: wearing and smartening.
          dhaarati is to wear.
          vibhuusana, embellishing is close to ma.n.dana.
          ma.n.dana (n): adornment, decoration.
          See Co. to Khuddakapaa.tha, Minor Readings, Ch II: the ten training
          precepts.
          Nina.

          Dhaara.na means wearing (page 341) Ma.n..dana means ornaments. (page 516) See the online Pali Text Society Dictionary:

            Dhaara.na means "wearing" (page 341)
            Ma.n..dana means "ornaments." (page 516)

            See the online Pali Text Society Dictionary:
            http://dsal.uchicago.edu/dictionaries/pali/

            The page search is at the bottom of the index page.

            And the online Dictionary of Pali Proper Names:
            http://www.palikanon.com/english/pali_names/dic_idx.html

            The precept means to abstain from using perfumes, cosmetics, or ornaments
            that beautify the person or conceal defects. It is OK to wear a wedding
            ring, but other jewellery, whether valuable or merely decorative, should
            be removed.
