Good question!

I had to look it up:

smile : (nt.) sita; mihita. (m.) mandahāsa. (v.i.) mandaṃ hasati; sitaṃ pātukaroti. (pp.) mandaṃ hasita; sitaṃ pātukata.

I would go with 'mihita'.

anavajjatā (I believe is the term) for blamelessness

Born slave, probably referring to existing slaves during the time of Buddha, caste system, not anything the Buddha approved of.
