Welcome back Chris
I'd also like to ask for help again in making this clear to me.
This sentence is from Lesson 16:
Mā te pāpakammāni katvā manussalokamhā cavitvā narake (in purgatory) uppajjantu.
do not / they / evil deeds / having committed / from human world / having departed / in purgatory / may…be born
May they not commit evil deeds and be born in purgatory after departing from the human world.
I'm not quite sure if this particle "mā" relates also to verb "katvā" and not only to "uppajjantu".
Is it possible to translate the sentence this way:
"After they have committed evil deeds and departed from human world, let them not be reborn in purgatory."
In fact, meaning of the both translations is the same, but since these are exercises, I just want to as precise as possible.
Many thanks for clarification.
