玉耶經 and 玉耶女經

Postby Indrajala » Thu Feb 23, 2012 9:52 am

I need to render these two sutra titles into English: 玉耶經 and 玉耶女經.

Does anyone know who 玉耶 is? Is there a Sanskrit or Pali rendering of this name?

I've searched around, but to no avail.

THE SEVEN TYPES OF WIVES

One day after a meal, as the Buddha was giving a discourse, much shouting and yelling was heard in the house as Sujata was again scolding the servants.
The Enlightened One interrupted his discourse and asked Anathapindika what kind of a commotion this was, that sounded like the noisy shouts of fisher folk.
The householder answered that it was his own daughter-in-law, who did not behave properly towards her husband or his parents,
who did not give alms, who was faithless and unbelieving, and who was forever causing conflict.
