Stefan wrote:What is the pali for rebirth? I did a search and it is variously translated as: 'punabhava', 'punnabhava', 'punabbhava', etc.. Which one is correct?
I'm sure Stefan has his answer after all this time, but in case anyone wonders by --- the meaning you already associate with "re-birth" may not fit into any
Jaati = birth (sometimes rebirth?)
upa-patti = [toward-] attainment (sometimes rebirth?)
puna-bbhava = re-becoming [process] (sometimes rebirth?)
abhinibbatti = production/result (sometimes rebirth?)
the list goes on.
