rigs thigs 'grel pa'i don bsdus by rngog blo ldan shes rab

Concise guide to the NBṬ (Dh), identified in its colophon as "bam po lnga pa'i bshad pa." The “five bam pos” refer to the length of the Tibetan translation of the NBṬ. This way of referring to the NBṬ is attested in the catalogue by bcom ldan ral gri compiled in 1270, which lists, after "rigs thigs bam po gcig" (=NB), "de’i ’grel pa chos mchog bam po lnga" (“its commentary, the five bam pos (by) Dharmottara”) (see Schaeffer and Kuijp 2009: 189, item 19.4). "The text takes up the NBṬ portion by portion; each portion is delineated by the mention of the first and/or last word(s) in the Tibetan translation. These portions are presented linearly, but organized into a hierarchical structure by means of successive subdivisions. The delineated portions of the source text are summarized and/or paraphrased, and their content is explained in more or less details. Some are the occasion of longer excursuses. In some cases also the author expresses his disagreement with Dharmottara and presents his own understanding of the topic." (Hugon 2014: 197)
