ṭhitāva

Post by Coëmgenu » Fri Dec 30, 2016 10:21 pm

Greetings all!

What does the word "ṭhitāva" mean in this context:
ṭhitāva sā dhātu dhammaṭṭhitatā dhammaniyāmatā idappaccayatā
When I hover over the word on SuttaCentral it gives me a "?". Is this word used to signify a question or is its definition simply missing?
神足示現者,
世尊隨其所應,而示現入禪定正受,陵虛至東方,作四威儀,
行、住、坐、臥,入火三昧,出種種火光,青、黃、赤、白、
紅、頗梨色,水火俱現, 或身下出火,身上出水,身上出火,
身下出水,周圓四方亦復如是。
