Parting from the Four Attachments, line 4



Zin pa chön na dta wa men

This looks like a different structure but it’s the same structure as the other three lines, just with a different verb: འབྱུང. There are actually two verbs in the line!

འཛིན་པ : zin pa : grasping (v); this appears to be the infinitive

འབྱུང : chön : arises (v)

: na : particle indicating if/then structure

ལྟ་བ : dta wa : view, orientation, philosophical view

མིན : men (min) : not, without

If grasping arises, you don’t have the view.
