Notes:

  • “the Skull-Garland Lotus (Payma T’öt’reng)”: pad+ma thod-phreng (rtsal), a form of Padmasambhava. This refers to King Gésar’s traditional association with Padmasambhava.
  • “battle spirits”: wer-ma
  • “warriors gods”: dgra-bla
  • “five degenerations” (snyigs-ma lnga): the degenerations or corruptions of lifespan (tshe), disturbing emotions (nyon-mongs), sentient beings (sems-can), time (dus) and views (lta-ba).
