Sakvala

Postby Will » Sat Feb 23, 2013 6:53 pm

What is the language of Sakvala?

It means something like universe or solar system, but where can I find online more details?
A bodhisattva does not become weary of evil beings nor does he commit the error of bringing forth thoughts inclined to reject them and cast them aside. Avatamsaka Sutra, ch. 25

I’ve just checked with the dictionary and it turns out my memory was deceiving me about the form of the Indonesian word. It’s actually ‘cakrawala’. Attached are the dictionary entries for both forms.

For your help Venerable :bow: :bow: :bow:

I did look up the Sanskrit & Pali forms and it turns out to be just another name for the Three Worlds - thanks again.
