geṇḍuka : (m.) a playing ball.Source: Sutta: The Pali Text Society's Pali-English Dictionary
Geṇḍuka, a ball for playing. The SS spelling is in all places bheṇḍuka, which has been taken into the text by the editors of J. and DhsA. The misspelling is due to a misreading of Singhalese bh›g; cp. spelling parābhetvā for parāgetvā.—bheṇḍukena kīḷi J.IV, 30; bhūmiyaṃ pahata-bheṇḍuka (striking against the ground) J.IV, 30; Vism.143 (pahaṭa-citra°)=DhsA.116 (where wrongly pahaṭṭha-citta-bheṇḍuka); J.V, 196 (citra-bh°); DhA.III, 364.
