, m., repression of ill-will,
way to repress ill-will; there are different sets of ~ā:
A III 185,10 foll. (pane' ime āvuso ~ā, yattha
bhikkhuno uppanno āghāto sabbaso paṭivinetabbo;
cf. Mp III 294,9) ≠ Pj II 10,20 foll. treats the five
~ā: mettā, karuṇā, upekkhā, amanasikāra or
asati and the thinking of kamma;) — A III 186,15
foll. (Mp III 294,24) treats five ~ā for five different
sorts of people: a man who is pure in deed or
word or who has attained mental clarity is to
fix his attention on the point(s) in which he has
obtained purity or mental clarity; if he is not pure or
mentally clear, ill-will is to be repressed by pity; Vism
299,21 foll. has a similar enumeration; — A IV 408,16
foll. (= D III 289,14; Vin V 137,25, Sp (VII) 1342,27)
enumerates 9 and A V 150,22 (cf. Mp IV 192,24; Vin
V 138,11, Sp (VII) 1343,29) 10 ~ā in close connection
with the 9 (10 ) āghātavatthūni (q. v.); ill-will is to be
repressed after the model: 'anattham me acari, taṁ
kut' ettha labbhā' ti (cf. Sv (III) 1045,35).
