Could someone translate

Postby Sumano » Thu Nov 12, 2009 10:34 pm

Could someone translate "wreath" and "black-eyebrowed" into Pali.

Many thanks!

Since I am not advanced on the Path, I cannot guarantee that what I say will always necessarily be 100% true or in line with the Dhamma. However, having had an extremely interesting life with a wide variety of different (many of them deep) experiences, I hope that anything I share will be of use, provide food for thought, and inspire interesting and beneficial discussions.

Mettā to all! :anjali:

wreath: dāma

black: kaṇha
black-eyed: kaṇhanetta
eye-brow: bhamu
(I think) eye-browed is: bhamukā

After looking it up again, I see that the kā at the end makes it "the eye-brow" not eye-browed. So I'm not sure how to make bhamu into eye-browed.
