Anjali! Sirsa Namami Venerables!
Sangham Saranam Gacchami!
Veneration & Greetings to the Sangha!

I am deeply grateful for your compassionate help, Venerable!

i request for the translation of the following portions from petakopadesa and nettipakarana (and a few lines from patthana pali).

in my humble opinion - an accurate translation of these lines, put online, may be for the benefit of many because it may help meditators clearly comprehend the meaning of samma sati & cattaro satipatthana bhavana.
(in addition to an analytical understanding & comparative study of the mahasatipatthana sutta, pathama gelanna sutta & dutiya gelanna sutta)

HUMBLY REQUEST TRANSLATION OF THE FOLLOWING THREE QUOTES

  1. Tattha katamo lakkhaṇo hāro?

Vuttamhi ekadhamme, ye dhammā ekalakkhaṇā tena;
Sabbe bhavanti vuttā, so hāro lakkhaṇo nāma.
Yesañca susamāraddhā, niccaṃ kāyagatāsatīti gāthāya vuttāya kāyagatāsatiyā vuttā vedanāgatā cittagatā dhammagatā ca sati catunnaṃ satipaṭṭhānānaṃ ekena satipaṭṭhānena. Na hi cittaṃ ekasmiṃ viññāṇaṭṭhitiyā pavattati, nānāsu gatīsu pavattati, kāyagatāsatiyā vuttāya vuttā vedanāgatā cittadhammagatā ca. Na hi kāyagatāsatiyā bhāvitāya satipaṭṭhānā cattāro bhāvanāpāripūriṃ na gacchanti. Evaṃ tassadisesu dhammesu vuttesu sabbadhammā vuttā ca bhavanti.
Sacittapariyodāpanaṃ, etaṃ buddhāna sāsananti gāthā cetasikā dhammā vuttā, citte rūpaṃ vuttaṃ. Idaṃ nāmarūpaṃ dukkhaṃ ariyasaccaṃ. Tato sacittapariyodāpanā yaṃ yaṃ odapeti, taṃ dukkhaṃ. Yena odapeti, so maggo. Yato odapanā, so nirodho. Cakkhuṃ ca paṭicca rūpe ca uppajjati cakkhuviññāṇaṃ, tattha sahajātā vedanā saññā cetanā phasso manasikāro ete te dhammā ekalakkhaṇā uppādalakkhaṇena. Yo ca rūpe nibbindati, vedanāya so nibbindati, saññāsaṅkhāraviññāṇesupi so nibbindati. Iti ye ekalakkhaṇā dhammā, tesaṃ ekamhi dhamme niddiṭṭhe sabbe dhammā niddiṭṭhā honti, ayaṃ vuccati lakkhaṇo hāro.

Here’s a link to the passages in the Peṭakopadesa and Netti translations:

Ñāṇamoli

And the Paṭṭhāna passage…

Kāyikaṃ sukhaṃ kāyikassa sukhassa, kāyikassa dukkhassa, phalasamāpattiyā upanissayapaccayena paccayo.

Kāyikaṃ dukkhaṃ kāyikassa sukhassa, kāyikassa dukkhassa, phalasamāpattiyā upanissayapaccayena paccayo.

Bodily pleasure is a condition for bodily pleasure, bodily pain, and the fruition attainment by way of decisive support condition.

regards and veneration at the feet of the sangha,

i am grateful to you venerable for sharing the translations of my quotes. i pondered over the material with great delight.

however, i could not understand the word “hāro

i will be very grateful if you @Dhammanando or ven @sujato may kindly explain what exactly is meant by “haro” here.

The quote from the Paṭṭhāna that I translated in my earlier post is simply what you get if you take the Cūḷadhammasamādānasutta (MN 45), translate it into Abhidhamma-speak (in this case, into the jargon of conditional relations theory) and then condense it into two lines. So, to see examples of how sukha can give rise to dukkha and vice versa, I recommend you begin by reading (or re-reading) the sutta in question.
