Sabba Kaaya or Sabbe Kaaya? Passambhayam?

Postby lojong1 » Mon Aug 02, 2010 11:26 pm

a few quick trivia questions to keep me off my toes and you on your bum
:alien:
Are sabba and sabbe the same word different number, i.e.:
sabba = nom. sing.?
sabbe = nom. pl.?
Or does one mean 'whole', the other 'all/every'?
Are both terms used in different versions of anapanasati and satipatthana in different countries/canons?

Can 'passambhayam' mean: [calm/calmed; having calmed; having been calmed; being calm'] instead of ['calming']?
Passive past participal or gerund or something else instead of whatever it usually is translated as?

:reading: :group: :!:

I'm a beginner, but seems like Sabba and Sabbe are the same word, but in different numbers to agree with a noun. So, sabba = whole, and sabbe = all. The whole person (singular), all of the people (plural). Still my guess, though.

I am also a beginner at Pali, but think that:

sabbe = one
sabba = all, every

Thanks kare, I'm finding more confirmation of that by googling passambhati. Makes me want to get some proper study material for home--maybe the Pali set Beeblebrox recommended.

Particularly when approached without subjectivism...and your readings are admirable in that regard Kare.
