S.iv.216 is Samyuttaka Nikya volume four, page 216 in the PTS edition of the romanized Pali suttas. CDB ii 1270 is the most recent citation reference form, which, of course, refers to volume two and page 1270 of Ven Bodhi's translations, which also uses the above PTS form. The others forms, the histories of which I do not really know other than they are different ways the texts are traditionally sectioned. The PTS form is the most commonly used among Western scholars. The traditional SN 36.11 form, as one can see here http://www.accesstoinsight.org/tipitaka/sn/index.html is, like the PTS form is also very useful.mirco wrote:Hi,
when it is suggested to look up S iv.217, where do I find it? SN? Sn? Which Sutta is it?
I puzzled, since there are many different abbreviation- and counting-/indexing-methods (PTS, CDB, MLDB, Pāḷi, ...) resulting from different editions.
So "S iv.217" could be "PTS Page 217", that is "SN 36.11", Rahogata Sutta.
But I not sure, since there should be informations about the six passaddhis, which I cannot find in that sutta.
So, for this one sutta , we got
CDB ii 1270
Saṃyuttanikāyo Mahāvaggo 8.1.1.
Does anyone know a source, where a correspondence of any of these systems can be seen?
