Mahāyāna Sūtra Alaṅkāra

Tatva Adhikāraḥ English

|| Oṃ, namaḥ, sarva buddha bodhisattvebhyaḥ ||

Kārikā Prathamaḥ

Paramārtha Lakṣaṇa Vibhāge Ślokaḥ

Not true, not also untrue, not that manner, not also another manner, ¦

nor suppresed, it dissapates not also, being diminished, |

nor expands, not therefore, becomes more pure again. ¦

Becomes more pure, 'that', the highest way characteristic! || 6.1 ||

Kārikā Dvitīyaḥ

Ātma Dṛṣṭi Viparyāsa Pratiṣedhe Ślokaḥ

Not also, is the ātman's beholding itself, the ātman's metaphoric inference. ¦

Not also, besides, is suffering with complete permanence without metaphoric inference. |

For these dualities not also again, tis the delusion, this indeed, arises. ¦

Thence, also, is liberation, a delusion construct of complete ruination. || 6.2 ||

Kārikā Tṛtīyaḥ

Viparyāsa Paribhāṣāyāṃ Dvau Ślaukau |

Pray tell, a living being, the going to and fro state, observing, ¦

tis, for the highest, like that, suffering fundamental nature, not the eternal. |

The non·sensualist, the sensualist, just so, distressed, ¦

not the distressed, is the dharma consisting; tis not made up of that. || 6.3 ||

Kārikā Caturthaḥ

Having gone contrarily, in an existence most distinguished, pray tell, the living being, ¦

the actual way of an action depends upon, other than, to be effected thereby. |

The illusion, the way, which is this, such like, ¦

which, the unobservant, the true·untrue, unobserves. || 6.4 ||

Kārikā Pañcamaḥ

Asatya Ātmani Śamajanma Yoge Ślokaḥ

Not also, within what also not tis known, of those two, ¦

the true means of an action, of a tranquility born sentient being, in this world. |

That manner, thereto, the living existence those two destroy, tis all encompassed, ¦

of equanimity, the grasping of righteous deeds enacting. || 6.5 ||

Kārikā Ṣaṣtaḥ

Tat Pratipakṣa Pārama Arthika Jñāna Praveśe Catvāraḥ Ślokāḥ

Having complete forbearance, for the preparation, unto an eternal other shore, ¦

of knowledge, of virtue also, is the bodhisattva, |

in dharmas, in thoughts, from non·attachment, ¦

for conversation in logical agreement, for the way through rebirth, in the highest, just so. || 6.6 ||

Kārikā Saptamaḥ

For these skillful means, one having fully known, and for these conversation matrixs, ¦

one stands firm to it, like within a thought construct. |

To presence, goes also a dharma's fundament, ¦

from that, detached, by the non·dual characteristic. || 6.7 ||

Kārikā Aṣtamaḥ

Not tis thus, from cognition, later, having been approached, by the discerning intellect. ¦

Of cogitation, not doth existence go on, from that. |

Of duality, not the existence having gone near to, a wise one ¦

stands firm, here, in the way of (a) dharma's fundament. || 6.8 ||

Kārikā Navamaḥ

The non·conceptuality, by knowledge's might, of one of wisdom. ¦

by being balanced following, from being universal, tis always, |

thus so, a locus, an abyss of darkness accumulation. ¦

By great illness, indeed, the poison tis cast out. || 6.9 ||

Kārikā Daśamaḥ

Parama Artha Jñāna Māha Ātmye Ślokaḥ

The awakened sage bestowed a good path of virtue well set down, ¦

for a focused intellect, having so established, with foundation in an element's fundament. |

For a reflective mind, having descended to the resonance matrix, ¦

proceeds the attribute ocean's highest attainable insightful comprehension. || 6.10 ||
