Re: QUERY> On the term 阿傍

Dear friends,

Just a few further notes on the Tibetan angle. So far as I have determined so far, the phrase a ba glang mgo is not actually used in the Tibetan Mdzangs blun, of which the "Sanskrit" title - Dāmomūrkhasūtra - is almost certainly not original, but a back translation from one or another of the languages in which the text was circulated. Tibetan gives only glang mgo, "ox head."
