Correction to AN 6.49

At: AN 6.49.3.3

Sumana’s claim copies Khema’s in the translation but the Pāli is different. Khema’s should probably read:

‘There is nobody better than me, nor equal to me, nor worse than me.’

‘natthi me seyyoti vā natthi me sadisoti vā natthi me hīnoti vā’

As I read it, Khema’s and Sumana’s claims essentially amount to the same but they are expressed differently. :anjal:

Well, on the face of it you appear to be correct! Perhaps Ven @sujato can explain why he translated it this way…

This looks very much like a copy & paste error. That happens so easily!
