Dhuta, (& Dhūta) (cp. Sk. dhuta & dhūta, pp. of dhunāti) 1. shaken, moved Dāvs.V, 49 (vāta°).—2. lit. “shaken off, ” but always explained in the commentaries as “one who shakes off” either cvil dispositions (kilese), or obstacles to spiritual progress (vāra, nīvaraṇa). The word is rare. In one constantly repeated passage (Vin.I, 45=305=II.2=III, 21=IV.213) it is an adj. opposed to kosajja lazy, remiss; and means either scrupulous or punctilious. At D.I, 5 it is used of a pain. At Sn.385 we are told of a dhutadhamma, meaning a scrupulous way of life, first for a bhikkhu, then for a layman. This poem omits all higher doctrine and confines itself to scrupulousness as regards minor, elementary matters. Cp. Vism.61 for a definition of dhuta.
Pali is the language of the Tipiṭaka, which is the sacred canon of Theravāda Buddhism and contains much of the Buddha’s speech. Closeley related to Sanskrit, both languages are used interchangeably between religions.
