PTS Pali-English dictionary The Pali Text Society's Pali-English dictionary
Vyāvaṭa,(adj.) [=Sk.vyāpṛta,cp.vyāpāra,byappatha.& veyyāvacca] doing service,active,busy; eager,keen,intent on (Loc.),busy with A.IV,195 (mayi=worrying about me); J.III,315 (su°); IV,371 (kiccâkiccesu v.= uyyatta C.); V,395 (=ussukka); VI,229 (=kāya-veyyāvacca-dān’ādi-kamma-karaṇena vyāvaṭa C.).--dassana° keen on a sight,eager to see J.I,89; VvA.213 (preferred to T.reading!).--dāna° serving in connection with a gift,busy with giving,a “commissioner of gifts,” i.e.a superintendent installed by a higher (rich) person (as a king or seṭṭhi) to look after the distribution of all kinds of gifts in connection with a mahādāna.Rh.Davids at Dial.II.372 (following Childers) has quite misunderstood the term in referring it to a vyāvaṭa in meaning of “hindered,” and by translating it as “hindered at the largesse” or “objecting to the largesse.” At none of the passages quoted by him has it that meaning.See e.g.D.II,354; J.III,129; Pv.II,950 (dāne v.=ussukkaṁ āpanna PvA.135); PvA.112 (dāne),124 (id.); DA.I,296 (? not found).avyāvaṭa not busy,not bothering about (Loc.),unconcerned with,not worrying D.II,141 (Tathāgatassa sarīre; trsln not to the point “hinder not yourselves”); Vin.III,136.See also separately.-- Note.vyāvaṭa (& a°) only occur in the meaning given above,and not in the sense of “covered,obstructed” [wrongly fr.vṛ] as given by Childers.Correct the trsln given under byāvaṭa accordingly!
