Pali Term: Pārihāriya

Hello Pali friends,

'Paarihaariya' grammatically is an '-iya' optative form, which indicates something that should be done (compare with 'kara.niiya'), etc.

In this case it is something which should be carried or kept (see 'harati')

In the case of mediation it is the subject (kamma.t.thaana) which should be constantly practiced (carried on):

Ya.m pana sadaa pariharitabba.m caritaanukuulena gahitattaa dasaasubhakasi.naanussatiisu a~n~natara.m, catudhaatuvavatthaanameva vaa, ta.m sadaa pariharitabbato, rakkhitabbato, bhaavetabbato ca paarihaariyanti vuccati, muulakamma.t.thaanantipi tadeva. Tattha ya.m pa.thama.m sabbatthakakamma.t.thaana.m manasi karitvaa pacchaa paarihaariyakamma.t.thaana.m manasi karoti, ta.m catudhaatuvavatthaanamukhena dassessaama.

Suttanipata-Atthakatha 1.54

In the case of taking food it is not returning back, keeping:

Paarihaariyanti sa"nghikaparibhoga.m pariharitvaa apanetvaa puggalikaparibhogena paribhu~njana.m, “attasantakan”ti vaa pariggahena haritvaa bhu~njana.m na va.t.tati.
