Commentary

Philological commentary

n1 cf. 2.8a ata evābhinirhṛtya.
n2 /// te: either 2.8d te or 2.9b namo'rhate. to might be to[s](a\) 'these', but a precise parallel in the Skt. text is not found.
n3 : restoration uncertain. wmār 'jewel' as the translation of Skt. ratna, frequent in these strophes, is excluded.
n4 either 2.11a–b rūparatnātmabhāvāya cittaratnāntarātmane or 2.13a–b namas te rūparatnāya cittara(tnā)ya te nama(ḥ) (in the latter case, it would provide the tnā restored by Hartmann 1987: 95).
n5 wināsam: probably (ci) wināsam 'I honour you' v.s., as a translation of e.g. 2.11d, 2.12d, 2.13b, 2.13d te namaḥ.
