abhijjamāna : (adj.) not breaking or separating.

Source: Sutta: The Pali Text Society's Pali-English Dictionary

Abhijjamāna, (adj.) (ppr. passive of a + bhid, see bhindati) that which is not being broken up or divided. In the stock descrīption of the varieties of the lower Iddhi the phrase udake pi abhijjamāne gacchati is doubtful. The principal passages are D.I, 78, 212; III, 112, 281; M.I, 34, 494; II, 18; A.I, 170, 255; III, 17; V, 199; S II 121; V, 264. In about half of these passages the reading is abhijjamāno. The various rcadings show that the MSS also are equally divided on this point. Bdgh. (Vism.396) reads °māne, and explains it, relying on Ps.II, 208, as that sort of water in which a man does not sink. Pv III, 11 has the same idiom. Dhammapāla’s note on that (PvA.169) is corrupt. At D.I, 78 the Colombo ed. 1904, reads abhejjamāne and tr. “not dividing (the water)” ; at D.I, 212 it reads abhijjamāno and tr. “not sinking (in the water)” . (Page 63)
