PTS Pali-English dictionary The Pali Text Society's Pali-English dictionary
Lañcana,in “kārāpesi tilañcanaṁ” at Dpvs 20,10 is not clear.We may have to correct reading into lañchanaṁ or lañchakaṁ.Oldenberg in his trsln (p.211) leaves the word out and remarks:“Probably this passage refers to the three pupphayāna mentioned in the Mahāvaṁsa (33,22,where Geiger reads “pupphādhānāni tīṇi,” with trsln “3 stone terraces for offerings of flowers”),though I do not know how to explain or to correct the word used here (tilañcanaṁ).” (Page 580)
