“ ‘Santi loke munayo’, This line is deficient by one syllable, and it's rather odd that we find no reading ‘Santi loke munayo’ ti, which would then give savipulā.01 icc-āyasmā Nando,

Ñāṇūpapannaṁ no muniṁ Thai, ChS read munino, probably a scribal ‘correction’ to avoid the break −−⏑ but this break is tolerated (see the Introduction), though it is strange that we do not find the reading na here.02 vadanti

diṭṭhassutenāpi BJT, Sn: diṭṭhe sutenāpi, and in 1080, 1081, but the grammar is wrong as diṭṭhe cannot be an instrumental which is what is needed here. PTS: diṭṭha-sutenā pi and in 1080, 1081, but we would expect gemination in the compound, which is also correct metrically. 05 vadanti suddhiṁ,

106 (1081) 7-5/6 This appears as 2 verses in BJT, but CNidd in its explanation takes both ‘verses’ together, which is not done elsewhere, so it seems that we have to understand that what we have here is a rather extraordinary 8 pāda Tuṭṭhubha verse.11
