Could someone tell me what is the literal meaning of 'rnam' in this context? thanks --Sébastien (talk) 11:43, 6 November 2019 (UTC) No meaning. These things came about because of the Sanskrit > Tibetan translation and are indicators of Sanskrit elements that can have meaning, but mostly do not add much meaning.--Hankop (talk) 05:01, 7 November 2019 (UTC) The page should be merged with Distraction/ rnam par g.yeng ba, these are identical. rnam g.yeng is just a short form. And remove 'distracted by appearances', this is a big mistake to take rnam as that.
Thanks for your answer! I will make these changes. Can one of the literal meanings of rnam par be 'consciousness'?--Sébastien (talk) 08:49, 7 November 2019 (UTC) No, as i said, these things have to do with Sanskrit grammar and how Tibetans translated that in their language. It has no meaning on itself. same as in nam-she, for consciousness. 'she' is the important word, nam doesn't mean much. --Hankop (talk) 05:42, 8 November 2019 (UTC)
