roga : (m.) disease; illness.Source: Sutta: The Pali Text Society's Pali-English Dictionary
Roga, (Vedic roga: ruj (see rujati), cp. Sk. rujā breakage, illness) illness, disease.—The definition of roga at J. II, 437 is “roga rujana-sabhāvattaṃ. ” There are many diff. enumerations of rogas and sets of standard combinations, of which the foll. may be mentioned. At sn 311 (cp. D. III, 75) it is said that in old times there were only 3 diseases, viz. icchā, anasanaṃ, jarā, which gradually, through slaughtering of animals, increased to 98. Bdhgh at SnA 324 hints at these 98 with “cakkhu-rog’adinā-bhedena. ” Beginning with this (cakkhuroga affection of the eye) we have a list of 34 rogas at Nd1 13 (under pākaṭa-parissayā or open dangers=Nd1 360= Nd2 420) & Nd2 3041 B, viz. cakkhu° & the other 4 senses, sīsa°, kaṇṇa°, mukha°, danta°; kāsa, sāsa, pināsa, ḍāha, jara; kucchiroga, mucchā, pakkhandikā, sūlā, visūcikā; kuṭṭhaṃ, gaṇḍo, kilāso, soso, apamāro; daddu, kaṇḍu, kacchu, rakhasā, vitacchikā, lohita‹-› pittaṃ, madhumeho, aṃsā, piḷakā, bhagandalā. This list is followed by list of 10 ābādhas & under “dukkha” goes on with var. other “ills, ” which however do not make up the number 98. The same list is found at A. V, 110. The 10 ābādhas (Nd2 3041 C.) occur at A. II, 87 & Miln. 308 (as āgantuka-rogā). The 4 “rogas” of the Sun (miln 273, cp. Vin. II, 295) are: abbha, mahikā, megha, Rāhu.—Another mention of roga together with plagues which attack the corn in the field is given at J. V, 401, viz. visa-vāta; mūsika-salabha-suka-pāṇaka; setaṭṭhika-roga etc., i.e. hurtful winds, mice, moths & parrots, mildew.—The combination roga, gaṇḍa, salla is sometimes found, e.g. M. II, 230; Vism. 335. Of other single rogas we mention: kucchi° (stomach-ache) J. I, 243; ahivātaka° Vin. I, 78; J. II, 79; IV, 200; DhA. I, 231; paṇḍu° jaundice Vin. I, 206; J. II, 102; DhA. I, 25; tiṇapupphaka° hay-fever Miln. 216.—See also ātaṅka & ābādha. On roga in similes see J. P. T. S. 1907, 130. ‹-› D. I, 11, 73; III, 182; S. III, 32; IV, 64; A. II, 128, 142 sq.; IV, 289, ; Nd1 486; Vism. 236 (as cause of death), 512 (in simile); VbhA. 88 (in sim. of dukkha etc.); ThA. 288; VvA. 6 (rogena phuṭṭha), 75 (sarīre r. uppajji); PvA. 86 (kacchu°), 212 (rogena abhibhūta).—Opp. aroga health: see sep.
