Part iii]   TWO RELIGIOUS POEMS   561



Two poems from the Teeg-mc`og-mdzod (tRwit•ic   ?)'. Written on a nearly rectangular sheet of native

paper about ioi inches by 71 inches, in a careless, semi-cursive script (E. i. ii). See Plate CXV III.

5. After ' the scribe has written (1:T1 by mistake, and then put marks of erasure.—g.   apparently

by error for   .—i5. The L" is very uncertain ; perhaps 41should be read.-18. At the beginning of this

and the next verse the scribe has written1, and then scored out the letters.

Mr. Francke has kindly furnished the following translation and notes. By a remarkable coincidence, these poems were a part of the studies once pursued by the evangelist of the Moravian Mission at Leh, Tear-riled Cos-opeel, formerly a Lama at the Tashilhunpo monastery, who learnt them and other works by heart 2 ; and Mr. Francke has likewise communicated this version, which, as will be seen, differs very little from that of the Endere MS.

The version of T`ar-riled Cos-01;0, apart from details of spelling, presents the following divergences :v. 8, nor dan p`a yul ; v. 9, mi bur ; v. ix, ci ltar ; v. 12, sgon bu; v.13, dga mgu odod; v. 14, bu smad gn"era gyis slu bar red; v.15, o, or ba sags pas odzin par red; v.16, smyo bai glan gis [b]rdzis par red; v.17, log pa na rjes mi gton na; v. 19, grva.

' The first poem is quoted by Sarat Chandra Das, Tibetan   Das, as he informs us that both poems are from the Teeg-

Dictionary, p. 653, as Mr. F. W. Thomas first perceived.   mc`og-mdzod.
