In translating this work, I have departed in certain minor respects from M. Cornu's presentation; I have supplied diacritics for all Sanskrit terms, and for the convenience of students of Tibetan, I have compiled a glossary of Tibetan terms in Wvlie transcription (Appendix 3). I have also supplied a number of footnotes. Those details aside, I have attempted to adhere to the principle that a translator should be sympathetically invisible.

I would like to record my gratitude to my wife, Krisztina, for her invaluable assistance in preparing this translation.
