Piḷhaka, (v. l. miḷhakā) at S. II, 228 is to be read as mīḷhakā “cesspool” (q. v.). The C. quoted on p. 228 expls incorrectly by “kaṃsalak’ādi gūthapāṇakā, ” which would mean “a low insect breeding in excrements” (thus perhaps=paṭaṅga?). The trsl. (K. S. II. 155) has “dung-beetle. ” (Page 461)
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.
