ཊྐཾ has all of the elements of the 'ṭaṃka' part, but not the 'ra'.
Also, (but I may be wrong) stacked letters in both native and Sanskritised TIbetan always describe a single syllable.
dzogchungpa wrote:It was just a guess, maybe the 'ka:' part is short for 'kara'. Also, isn't karmapa sometimes spelled ཀརྨ་པ་?
dharmagoat wrote:Yes, but the རྨ is one syllable. Dividing into syllables ཀརྨ་པ་ would be 'ka-rma-pa', although it is pronounced 'kar-ma-pa'.

The fact that it occurs on it's own, at the beginning of a couple lines, leads me to think it's some sort of "Tershay" or marker that is not read...it occurs at the beginning of the part of the text relating to the practice of "development and offering" for raising windhorse, before the title...and then after the title, before the homage.
