Passanā & Dassanā

Postby Unrul3r » Mon Feb 11, 2013 2:09 pm

Hello everybody!

I'm wondering what would be your thoughts on these two words: Passanā and Dassanā

Both of them seem to point to "seeing" but, from Sanskrit, dassanā seems closer to "showing, exhibiting, appearance".

I have only seen their meaning from an etymological point of view, what would a contextual analysis point to?

With metta. :)
