Visuddhimagga X-64

292. Evaṃ pavattamānañca –


Ñ(X,64): And while occurring in this way:

Ārammaṇaṃ karoteva, aññābhāvena taṃ idaṃ;

Diṭṭhadosampi rājānaṃ, vuttihetu jano yathā.





Ñ: It takes this for its object since

There is no other one as good,

As men depend upon a king,

Whose fault they see, for livelihood.
