micchåcårin is one who indulges in sexual misconduct (i.e. takes women belonging to others); abrahmacårin is one who engages in any sexual activity at all. §3 [‘one who is above the stream’] c/o: one who goes upstream. Kåya [-saπkhåra, the material aggregate, substratum of body] c/o: kåyasaπkhåra is either assåsapassåså (with vac⁄saπkhåra and cittasaπkhåra—M. i,301-2) OR kåyasañcetanå (with vac⁄saπkhåra and manosaπkhåra—A. ii,158). See note to CITTASAΠKHÅRA. Kåyasaπkhåra is clearly a different grammatical compound in the two cases (so also vac⁄saπkhåra). Saπkhåra in both cases means that which something depends on; but in the first case it is what the body depends on, namely, the in and out breath, and in the second case it is what the pañcakkhandhå depend on, that is to say, intention. In the second case, then, kåyasaπkhåra is intention associated with the body, that is to say, bodily action. See NoD, saπkhåra. There is no particular connexion between these two meanings.

See NoD, sakkåya (b). Khandha II.B. [khandhå (pl.) the elements or substrata of sensory existence, sensorial aggregates which condition the appearance of life in any form. Their character according to quality and value of life and body is evanescent, fraught with ills & leading to rebirth.]: They are simply the constituent parts of every experience. Ga~∂in: Not (f.) at the second reference (J V.202), but (m.). A case of mistaken identity. The lexicographer has (again) paid no attention to the context. Gu~a (1) [pañca kåmagu~å, the 5 strands of kåma, or 5-fold craving]: NO. At A. iii,411 it is said that the kåmagu~å are not kåma. Go [-rakkhå … given as a superior profession]: The origin of the name Gurkha. Gotrabh¨ [a supplementary Sutta in the Majjhima (Vol.
