In my signature I have a quote from Sutta-piṭaka which means: "Dhammas are rooted in the Blessed One...". This words appear frequently in the discourses, when monks questioned by the Buddha are uncertain about some point in the teachings. But I wonder what the Commentary has to say about it. Could someone translate this piece of Commentary?
- Bhagavaṃmūlakāti bhagavā mūlaṃ etesanti bhagavaṃmūlakā. Idaṃ vuttaṃ hoti – ime, bhante, amhākaṃ dhammā pubbe kassapasammāsambuddhena uppāditā, tasmiṃ parinibbute ekaṃ buddhantaraṃ añño samaṇo vā brāhmaṇo vā ime dhamme uppādetuṃ samattho nāma nāhosi, bhagavatā pana no ime dhammā uppāditā. Bhagavantañhi nissāya mayaṃ ime dhamme ājānāma paṭivijjhāmāti evaṃ bhagavaṃmūlakā no, bhante, dhammāti.—Mahādhammasamādānasuttavaṇṇanā
