Imaham Bhagava attabhavam tumhakam pariccajjami

Postby M.G.A. » Sun Apr 17, 2011 11:24 am

Hello everybody!

I came across this pāḷi phrase: "Imaham Bhagava attabhavam tumhakam pariccajjami", and it was translated as “Blessed One, I relinquish this my person to you.” But the diacritical marks are missing, aren't they? So what I am wondering is if any pāḷi-expert here could please help me with pointing out what is missing to make it correct pāḷi? That would make me truly grateful!

I tried to google the phrase without the marks to find the correct way by means of that, but without success.

Metta!

Without looking it up, I would say it should be:
