心相續

Post by Coëmgenu » Tue Dec 12, 2017 5:37 pm

心相續. Why is the Sanskrit for this cittasantāna & not cittasaṃtati?
佛子。如來智慧。無相智慧。無閡智慧。具足在於眾生身中。但愚癡眾生顛倒想覆。不知不見不生信心。
O, sons and daughters. The Thus-Gone's wisdom. The signless wisdom. The unobstructed wisdom. It perfectly dwells within all sentient beings’ minds. Yet in ignorance, sentient beings err and think it covered. Not knowing, not seeing, not giving rise to faith.

It can be both according to DDB: -santāna is masculine and -saṃtati is feminine.
