My pali translation project

Postby danielgbg » Sat May 05, 2012 1:19 pm

So, I thought that I could have my own thread where I ask for guidance when I translate suttas. It's in no way systematic, I'm just learning pali by translating som random interesting sutta once in a while.

Now I'm translating this sutta :)

AN 10.80 Agathapativinaya Sutta

“dasayime, bhikkhave, āghātapaṭivinayā. katame dasa? ‘anatthaṃ me acari, taṃ kutettha labbhā’ti āghātaṃ paṭivineti, ‘anatthaṃ me carati, taṃ kutettha labbhā’ti āghātaṃ paṭivineti, ‘anatthaṃ me carissati, taṃ kutettha labbhā’ti āghātaṃ paṭivineti, piyassa me manāpassa anatthaṃ acari ... pe ... carati ... pe ... carissati, taṃ kutettha labbhāti āghātaṃ paṭivineti, appiyassa me amanāpassa atthaṃ acari ... pe ... atthaṃ carati ... pe ... atthaṃ carissati, taṃ kutettha labbhāti āghātaṃ paṭivineti, aṭṭhāne ca na kuppati — ime kho, bhikkhave, dasa āghātapaṭivinayā”ti. dasamaṃ.

Bhikkhu Thanissaro gives taṃ kutettha labbhā as "but what should I expect?". Can someone explain this sentence? Is kutettha=kuto ettha?

Have you thought about using a study aid?
what dictionaries are you using? how are you translating them?
This offering maybe right, or wrong, but it is one, the other, both, or neither!
