"'All phenomena have release as their heartwood.
"'All phenomena gain their footing in the deathless.
"'All phenomena have Unbinding as their final end.'


Does anybody know Commentarial explanation on this part of the sutta? :reading: :shrug:

Hi,

here Commentary deals only with the last two sentences, because elsewhere it deals with first eight. The part I can understand says that nibbāna-element with remainder (saupādisesā nibbānadhātu) is spoken of as “gain footing in deathless”, and nibbāna-element without remainder (anupādisesā nibbānadhātu) is “final nibbāna”. Then there's part I don't really know how to translate.

Thanks,

Well, it's quite clear that these 2 sentences speak about nibbana (or final nibbana).
I wonder if there is some comment on the details (as "gain footing in nibbana" means... [this and this]) :reading:

Hi Zom,

It only says, as far as I can tell, that it's named “without remainder” (anupādisesa) because all dhammas (i.e. five khandhas according to Commentary) reach final. That's all and there's no more details.

Here's whole commentary:

    Mūlakasuttavaṇṇanā

    Aṭṭhame amatogadhāti ettha saupādisesā nibbānadhātu kathitā, nibbānapariyosānāti ettha anupādisesā. Anupādisesaṃ pattassa hi sabbe dhammā pariyosānappattā nāma honti. Sesapadāni heṭṭhā vuttatthāneva.
Bhagavaṃmūlakā no, bhante, dhammā...
