Sylvester and Geoff ,

While I find your squabbling somwhat entertaining, albeit unintentionally so, and while I find your postings of interest, the squabbling is really rather petty and detracts from what is being said and is a distraction to the flow of the thread in general. Probably best for both of you to refrain altogether from such exchanges in this thread.

"Life is a struggle. Life will throw curveballs at you, it will humble you, it will attempt to break you down. And just when you think things are starting to look up, life will smack you back down with ruthless indifference..."

Can someone translate this please:?


Taṃ kiṃ maññasi, māgaṇḍiya, api nu so devaputto nandane vane accharāsaṅghaparivuto dibbehi pañcahi kāmaguṇehi samappito samaṅgībhūto paricārayamāno amussa gahapatissa vā gahapatiputtassa vā piheyya, mānusakānaṃ vā pañcannaṃ kāmaguṇānaṃ mānusakehi vā kāmehi āvaṭṭeyyā”ti?

Thanks

Sylvester, could kaamesu be referring to kaama rather than kaamaa?
