Pāli Word a Day for June 27, 2017 —
juṇhā — moonlight, a moonlit night, the bright fortnight of the month

Saṅgāhako mittakaro,
Vadaññū vītamaccharo,
Netā vinetā anunetā,
Tādiso labhate yasaṃ.

Who is hospitable, and friendly,
Liberal and unselfish,
A guide, an instructor, a leader,
Such a one to honour may attain.
