Hi all. First of all, Happy New Year to everyone! I hope everyone had a 2023 filled with Dhamma.

This is a minor point unrelated to the main ideas of this thread, but I just want to sort out a couple of Pali terms.

There are various statements like:

“The puthujanas who reside most of the time in the apayas …”

My understanding is that the term puthujjana means an average (anariya) HUMAN and that “satta” means an average being in general (including a puthujjana).

… so the statement should be:
“The sattās who reside most of the time in the apayā …”?
