Variant Readings

Post by pulga » Tue Jan 28, 2020 2:05 pm

When assessing variant readings in the Suttas how much weight is given to the Commentaries in determining which one is to be preferred? Is the commentarial reading always to be preferred? Do the Commentaries themselves contain variant readings? Any information or thoughts would be greatly appreciated.
