Yevāpana, (ka) (adj.) (not connected with yeva, but an adj. formation from phrase ye vā pana; ye here standing (as Māgadhism) for yaṃ: cp. yebhuyya) corresponding, reciprocal, respective, in corresponding proportion, as far as concerned; lit. “whatever else. ” The expression is peculiar to exegetical (logical) literature on the Abhidhamma. See e.g. DhsA. 152 (yevāpanā, pl. and °kā); Vism. 468, 271 sq.; VbhA. 63, 70 sq.; cp. Dhs. trsl. 1 p. 5 and introd. p. 56.—Note. The expression occurring as phrase shows ye as Nom. pl. e.g. Dhs. 1, 58, 151—161 & passim: ye vā pana tasmiṃ samaye aññe pi dhammā; but cp. in § 1: yaṃ yaṃ vā pan’ārabbha, in same sense. (Page 558)
