Have you ever seen a moving contraption?


What could be this moving contraption that the Buddha mentions in SN 22.100 Gaddula Sutta- the Leash ?


that’s a good one :slight_smile:

contraption: a mechanical contrivance; gadget; device.

there seems to have been quite a few “mechanical contraptions” available at the time of the Buddha.
i would guess it was no one thing in particular.


Alternative translation is that it’s a picture called ‘movement’.
