Hi befriend,

Possibly:

Buddha-pūjā (but that is usually meant for bowing and other rituals, offering incense, chanting) or

Buddha-vandana

David and others
keep up the good work
is there a structure of how this should be studied
for example 1 letter then 2 letters, then 3 letters
what is the maximum letters for the word.
what is the structure of talking in pali

Dear all,

Can anyone explain this Pali sentence to me?
Thanks in advance!

kumbhatthenakehi (Source word from Kula Sutta SN8. 1. 3.)

From the Pali dictionary, I only manage to found [kumbha] as a water pot. The the rest I could not understand.
