The Pali word "sambhava" ???

Post by DooDoot »

Dear Pali gurus

The Pali "sambhava" is derived from saṃ + bhava.

My questions are:

1. How is "sambhava" best translated?

2. How are saṃ + bhava each to be translated?

3. What meanings & contexts make the word "sambhava" unique?

4. How is ""sambhava" distinguished from words such as "uppajjati"?

Thank you. :smile:
There is always an official executioner. If you try to take his place, It is like trying to be a master carpenter and cutting wood. If you try to cut wood like a master carpenter, you will only hurt your hand.
