Ratnagotravibhāga Root Verse IV.71

Verse IV.71 Variations

प्रतिश्रुत्कारुतं यद्वत् परविज्ञप्तिसंभवम्
निर्विकल्पम् अनाभोगं नाध्यात्मं न बहिः स्थितम्
E. H. Johnston as input by the University of the West.[1]
pratiśrutkārutaṃ yadvat paravijñaptisaṃbhavam
nirvikalpam anābhogaṃ nādhyātmaṃ na bahiḥ sthitam
E. H. Johnston as input by the University of the West.[2]
ཇི་ལྟར་སྒྲ་བརྙན་གྱི་ནི་སྒྲ། །
གཞན་གྱི་རྣམ་རིག་ལས་བྱུང་བ། །
རྣམ་རྟོག་མེད་ཅིང་བཟོ་མེད་ལ། །
ཕྱི་དང་ནང་ན་མི་གནས་ལྟར། །
Just as the sound of an echo
Arises in the cognizance of others,
Is without thought, effortless,
And abides neither inside nor outside,
De même que le son de l’écho,
Qui jaillit de la perception des êtres
N’a pas de pensées, n’est pas fabriqué
Et ne se tient pas plus dedans que dehors,

RGVV Commentary on Verse IV.71

།སྒྲ་སྙན་གྱི་སྒྲ་བཞིན་ཞེས་བྱ་བ་ནི། ཇི་ལྟར་སྒྲ་བརྙན་གྱི་ནི་སྒྲ། །གཞན་གྱི་རྣམ་རིག་ལས་བྱུང་བ། །རྣམ་རྟོག་མེད་ཅིང་བཟོ་མེད་ལ། །ཕྱི་དང་ནང་ལ་མི་གནས་ལྟར། །དེ་བཞིན་དེ་བཞིན་གཤེགས་པའི་གསུང་། །

གཞན་གྱི་རྣམ་རིག་ལས་བྱུང་བ། །རྣམ་པར་རྟོག་མེད་བསམ་མེད་པ། །ཕྱི་དང་ནང་ན་གནས་མ་ཡིན།

Other English translations[edit]

Obermiller (1931) [6]
Just as the sound of the echo
Arising from vocal intimations
Is free from searching thought, is not articulated,
And has no real foundation, neither external nor internal,
Takasaki (1966) [7]
Just as the sound of an echo
Arising from the voice of others
Is of no discrimination and of no effort,
And has no foundation, either inside or outside;
Fuchs (2000) [8]
Just as the sound of an echo arises
due to the perception of others,
without thought or purposeful labor
and neither abiding without or within,
