Notes

[1] syllable decorated with multiple dots rising vertically.

[2] syllable initially omitted then crudely inserted below the line

[3] we expect but the syllable is probably

[4] this scribe regularly confuses ra/la

[5] syllable looks like ru; but we expect a.

[6] i.e. tenaiva = tena eva

[7] rupā is written underneath the line, with an arrow indicating the scribe intended it to fit between evaṃ and ve(dana).

[8] Syllable unclear but we expect tryadhva-

[9] expect tya but it can’t be this.

[10] omitted

[11] an ink smudge – no expected syllable is omitted.
