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


Do you have a link to an online version of that SN passage in English? That might help locate the exact meaning and context.

David,

I couldn't found an English version of Kula Sutta, but only have the Pali text.

3. Kulasuttaṃ

225. Sāvatthiyaṃ viharati…pe… ‘‘seyyathāpi , bhikkhave, yāni kānici kulāni bahutthikāni appapurisāni tāni suppadhaṃsiyāni honti corehi kumbhatthenakehi ; evameva kho, bhikkhave, yassa kassaci bhikkhuno mettācetovimutti abhāvitā abahulīkatā so suppadhaṃsiyo hoti amanussehi. Seyyathāpi, bhikkhave, yāni kānici kulāni appitthikāni bahupurisāni tāni duppadhaṃsiyāni honti corehi kumbhatthenakehi, evameva kho, bhikkhave, yassa kassaci bhikkhuno mettācetovimutti bhāvitā bahulīkatā so duppadhaṃsiyo hoti amanussehi. Tasmātiha, bhikkhave, evaṃ sikkhitabbaṃ – ‘mettā no cetovimutti bhāvitā bhavissati bahulīkatā yānīkatā vatthukatā anuṭṭhitā paricitā susamāraddhā’ti. Evañhi vo, bhikkhave, sikkhitabba’’nti. Tatiyaṃ.

This is a brief explanation for the Sutta:

1. Kula Sutta.-Families consisting of many women and few men are molested by robbers; likewise a monk who has not developed emancipation of mind through love is easily molested by non-humans (S.ii.263).

Hi David, I got it from the Pali group:

(kumbhatthenaka. VA. 1291 says "having lit a light in a pot, by its light they search others' houses for booty.)
