      Hello

      Are you referring to the Sutta ?

      If wrong, Lal will correct it…

      1. Sarana” in Pali and Sinhala means “refuge”.
      2. Buddham saranam gaccami” means “I take refuge in Buddha”

        Saraniya could mean “in accordance with taking refuge in X”, where X depends on where the word is used.

      3. The Pali dictionary that I like has both words “sarana” and “saraniya“:
        Concise Pali-English Dictionary

      It says “saraniya” is “fit to be remembered”.

      Either one could be right depending on the context.

      Thank you Embodied for the sutta reference! Stūtiyi Lal!

      They are both very helpful!

      With metta!
