Diṭṭhiñca

Postby cooran » Sat May 02, 2009 8:28 am

Hello all,

I hope someone can help me with the meaning of the word "Diṭṭhiñca" in this verse from the Metta Sutta:

152. Diṭṭhiñca anupagamma sīlavā dassanena sampanno
Kāmesu vineyya gedhaṃ nahi jātu gabbhaseyyaṃ punaretīti.

I'm wondering if it could mean Ditthin (adj. -- n.) one who has a view, or theory, a follower of such & such a doctrine Ud 67 (evaŋ˚+evaŋ vādin) rather than simply meaning Wrong View?
