Santikaṃ pana gahetvā ko dūramakāsīti? Bhagavā.


Ñ(XII,125): Who has taken what was near and made it far? The Blessed One.

Bhagavā hi attano ca aṅgulimālassa (ma. ni. 2.348) ca antaraṃ santikampi dūramakāsīti.


Ñ: For although Aṅgulimāla was near to the Blessed One, yet he made him far (see M.ii,99).
