SN 55.27 Translation?

I’ve recently seen SN55.27 used to reference something but I can’t find an english translation of it. Is there any linguists out there that can tell me the key points of that particular sutta?

You can usually find it at Obo the Awakener - Sutta Index.

The link to this specific sutta is:
http://obo.genaud.net/dhamma-vinaya/pts/sn/05_mv/sn05.55.027.wood.pts.htm
(PTS’ F. L. Woodward’s 19th century translation)

P.S.: Does anyone know about the individual behind this website? I really like the unusual choice of words and drawings found in there, especially in the The Buddha’s System in Outline section. :slight_smile:

First published 1930 :laughing: People read the PTS translations and think they must be so old. But they were already archaic when they were published. They put out texts with “thees” and “thous” even after the Beatles were saying, “She loves you, yeah, yeah, yeah”!

The Obo site is run, I think, by two people: Mike Oldfields, who I think is responsible for the content, and Alex Genaud, who does the tech stuff.
