lokiya : (adj.) worldly; mundane.Source: Sutta: The Pali Text Society's Pali-English Dictionary
Lokiya, (& lokiyika) (adj.) (fr. loka; cp. Vedic laukika in meaning “worldly, usual”) 1. (ordinarily) “belonging to the world, ” i. e.—(a) world-wide, covering the whole world, famed, widely known Th. 1, 554; J. VI, 198. ‹-› (b) (-°) belonging to the world of, an inhabitant of (as lokika) Pv. I, 62 (Yama°).—(c) common, general, worldly Vism. 89 (samādhi); DhA. IV, 3 (°mahājana) PvA. 131 (°parikkhaka), 207 (sukha), 220 (°sabhāva). See also below 3.—2. (special meaning) worldly, mundane, when opposed to lokuttara. The term lokuttara has two meanings- viz. (a) in ordinary sense: the highest of the world, best, sublime (like lokagga, etc.), often applied to Arahantship, e.g. lokuttaradāyajja inheritance of Arahantship J. I, 91; DhA. I, 117; ideal: lokuttara dhamma (like parama dhamma) the ideal state, viz. Nibbāna M. II, 181; pl. l. dhammā M. III, 115.—(b) (in later canonical literature) beyond these worlds, supra-mundane, transcendental, spiritual. In this meaning it is applied to the group of nava lokuttarā dhammā (viz. the 4 stages of the Path: sotāpatti etc., with the 4 phala’s, and the addition of nibbāna), e.g. Dhs. 1094. Mrs. Rh. D. tries to compromise between the two meanings by giving lokuttara the translation “engaged upon the higher ideal” (Dhs. tsrl. Introd. p. 98), since meaning (b) has too much of a one-sided philosophical appearance. On term cp. Cpd. 913.—3. lokiya (in meaning “mundane”) is contrasted with lokuttara (“transcendental”) at many passages of the Abhidhamma, e.g. at Ps. II, 166; Dhs. 505, 1093, 1446; Vbh. 17 sq. , 93, 106, 128, 229 sq. , 271, 322; Kvu 222, 515, 602; Pug. 62; Tikp 41 sq. , 52 sq. , 275; Dukp 304, 324; Nett 10, 54, 67, 77, 111, 161 sq. , 189 sq.; Miln. 236, 294 (lokika), 390; Vism. 10, 85, 438; DA. I, 331; DhsA. 47 sq. , 213; VbhA. 128, 373; DhA. I, 76 (lokika); II, 150; III, 272; IV, 35. (Page 588)
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.
