Introduction to 1.2.2 Puggalavaggo (The Two Rare Individuals)
Compared with the Ekapuggalavaggo the Puggalavaggo increases the number of appearances by one, the wheel-turning monarch: -rājā ca cakkavattī-.
It may be noted that the expression:-uppajjamānāuppajjanti- describes in its grammatical form the enduring process of fulfilling the perfections: -uppajjamānā– when, upon arising- thus relating to the great aspiration of the Tathāgata in performing his persisting efforts. -uppajjanti- they arise- for the sake and benefit of the wellbeing of many folk, and not for any other reason: uppajjantābahujanahitatthāya uppajjanti, na aññena kāraṇenāti evamettha attho veditabbo.
May deep respect and gratitude develop!
