kanta-ppakanta

, mfn. [< 4kanta (q.v.) + (p)pakan-
ta], moving back and forth, hence: fickle, vacillating, in-
constant; reading of Ck
(confirmed by Tr.) at Ja V 445,14*
for kannappakanna (q.v.); thīnaṁ hi cittaṁ yathā vā-
narassa ~aṁ (so read with Ck; BeCeEe and Kuṇāla-ja
59,17: kannappakannaṁ) yathā rukkhachāyā calāca-
laṁ hadayaṁ itthiyānaṁ, Ja V 445,14* (= otiṇṇotiṇ-
ṇaṁ, yathā hi visame padese rukkhacchāyā ninnam
pi orohati thalam pi abhirūhati tathā etāsam pi cit-
taṁ na kiñci uttamâdhamaṁ vajjeti, 446,23'); —
Rem.: despite BeCeEe and Kuṇāla-ja ~ must represent
the correct reading, unless one assumes with
PTC (s.v.
pakkhanna) that the reading kannappakanna is a mis-
take for
khannappakkhanna (pp. < sa. √skand), with
deaspiration of
kh and kkh > k m.c., which is unlikely to
be true.
