Completion particle, full stop, སླར་བསྡུ་, རྫོགས་ཚིག་

This particle can come at the end of a section of related clauses, a quote or a sentence.


The final letter of the last word is duplicated and placed as an extra syllable with an added  .

  • E.g. འདོད་དོ། །, འདུག་གོ །, བྱུང་ངོ༌། །, ཡིན་ནོ། །, ཐོབ་བོ། །, སྙམ་མོ། །, དགར་རོ། །, འཕེལ་ལོ། །, བྱས་སོ། །, གྱུརད་ཏོ། །.

In the case of the final letter འ་ the   is added to the འ་ of the word without a duplicated letter.

  • E.g. འདའ་ and འོ་ becomes འདའོ། །.

In the case of no postfix letter, མཐའ་མེད་, an འོ་ is added to the word.

  • E.g. འགྲོ་ and འོ་ becomes འགྲོའོ། །.
