Hi, I'm hoping someone can help on an issue of punctuation. I want to quote the first two lines - but only the first two lines - of the following:

།འཁོར་བ་མྱ་ངན་འདས་པ་ལས།
།ཁྱད་པར་ཅུང་ཟད་ཡོད་མ་ཡིན།
།མྱ་ངན་འདས་པ་འཁོར་བ་ལས།
།ཁྱད་པར་ཅུང་ཟད་ཡོད་མ་ཡིན།།


Can anyone tell me which punctuation marks I should include? If the first two lines are put on a single line (i.e.):

།འཁོར་བ་མྱ་ངན་འདས་པ་ལས།།ཁྱད་པར་ཅུང་ཟད་ཡོད་མ་ཡིན།

Do I need to delete one or both of the shads in the middle? Also, do the shads at the beginning and end remain the same?

The text is of course from MMK 25.19

Many thanks,

JD

It has to look like this:

།འཁོར་བ་མྱ་ངན་འདས་པ་ལས། །ཁྱད་པར་ཅུང་ཟད་ཡོད་མ་ཡིན།


You need more space between final shad and the beginning shad.

But if you did it in Sanskrit it would be just one long string i.e. two verses of Tibetan generally = one verse of Sanskrit.
