Verse I.132 Variations

नव रागादयः क्लेशाः संक्षेपेण यथाक्रमम्
नवभिः पद्मकोशादिदृष्टान्तैः संप्रकाशिताः
nava rāgādayaḥ kleśāḥ saṃkṣepeṇa yathākramam
navabhiḥ padmakośādidṛṣṭāntaiḥ saṃprakāśitāḥ
E. H. Johnston as input by the University of the West.[1]
ཆགས་སོགས་དྲི་མ་དགུ་པོ་འདི། །
མདོར་བསྡུས་ནས་ནི་གོ་རིམས་བཞིན། །
པདྨའི་སྦུབས་ལ་སོགས་པ་ཡི། །
དཔེ་དགུ་དག་གིས་ཡང་དག་བསྟན། །
Nine afflictions such as desire,
In brief and in due order,
Are elucidated by the nine examples
Of the sheath of a lotus and so on.
是名略說九 種煩惱次第萎華等九種譬喻我已廣說應 知
(This verse is not marked as such in the Chinese translation.)
L’attachement et les huit autres souillures
Sont disposés ci-dessus de façon à correspondre,
Dans le même ordre, au lotus fané
Et aux huit autres comparaisons.

Other English translations[edit]

Obermiller (1931) [5]
These 9 forms of defilement, Passion and the rest,
Being taken in short, respectively,
Are illustrated by 9 examples,一
That of the coverings of a lotus and the rest.
Takasaki (1966) [6]
Nine Defilements, beginning with Desire,
Being taken in short, respectively,
Are illustrated by 9 examples,
That of the sheath of a lotus flower and others.
Fuchs (2000) [7]
But when it is comprised concisely,
the nine defilements of desire and the other afflictions
are well explained in the given order by the nine similes
of the shroud of the lotus and the subsequent examples.

  3. Note that I.132 is preceded solely by this lone word "these" and that lines I.132cd correspond literally to lines I.131ab. This is why Johnston suggested that I.132 is not an actual verse, but just a part of the commentary on I.131ab, while the following paragraph explains I.131cd.
