Buddhasahassanāmāvali - Verse 13
महासोकसल्लकत्तो, महाखीलविसोधनो; महासन्तिसुखकरो, बुद्धं तं पणमाम्यहं.
Mahāsokasallakatto, Mahākhīlavisodhano; Mahāsantisukhakaro, Buddhaṃ taṃ paṇamāmyahaṃ.
I bow to the Buddha, The supreme surgeon who removed grief and woe, A radical destroyer of the strong stakes of craving, And a great harbinger of peace and happiness.
- mahāsokasallakatto - a supreme surgeon (dealing with) terrible grief and woe
(mahā + soka + salla + katto)1 great + grief + arrow + cut off, remove)
- mahākhīlavisodhano - a radical destroyer of the strong stakes of craving
(mahā + khīla + visodhano great + pillar, post + cleansing)
- mahāsantisukhakaro - a great harbinger of peace and happiness
(mahā + santi + sukha + karo great + peace + happiness + giver)
 Just like a surgeon removes a poisoned arrow the Buddha removes the arrow of grief
