III, 332, Samanta-pāsādika; and in detail DA. I, 57). It consisted in the appearance of phenomena of opposite character in pairs, as e.g. streaming forth of fire & water. (Cp. Mhvs trsln 120). The miracle was repeatedly performed by the Buddha & is often referred to, e.g. at Ps. I, 125 (°hīra); J. I, 77, 88, 193; Miln. 106 (°hīraṃ), 349 (°hāriyaṃ); Mhvs 17, 44, 50; 30, 82; 31, 99; Dāvs. I, 50 (°hīraṃ); DhA. III, 213 (id.); SnA 36; Vism. 390; PvA. 137. —sālā the pair of Sal willows in between of which the Buddha passed away VvA. 165; PvA. 212.—2. (adj. or m.) a twin, twin child Mhvs 6, 9 (yamake duve puttaṃ ca dhītaraṃ janesi), 37 (soḷasakkhattuṃ yamake duve duve putte janayi); DhA. I, 353 (same, with vijāyi).—3. (nt.) a pair, couple, N. of one of the Abhidhamma canonical books, also called Yamaka-ppakaraṇa; Tikp 8.—The Yamakasutta refers to the conversion of the bhikkhu Yamaka and is given at S. III, 109 sq.; mentioned at Vism. 479 & VbhA. 32. The phrase yamakato sammasana at Vism. 626 may mean “in pairs” (like kalāpato “in a bundle” ibid.), or may refer to the Yamaka-sutta with its discussion of anicca, dukkha, anatta. (Page 551)
