Notes

Another (?) gshen priest with a similar name : rNgegs shen rmun bu (ms. ITJ 0734 l. 330).

The name "rMun bu" has been interpreted as "darkness-son" by F. W. Thomas (Thomas 1957, p. 94). It may also be linked to the medicinal nad ma rmun bu plant that grows near rivers and seems to be used for treating wounds (see Tibetan Medicinal Plants / C. Kletter and M. Kriechbaum. - Stuttgart : Medpharm, 2001, p. 182 and Dictionary of Tibetan Materia Medica / Pasang Yonten Arya. - Delhi : Motilal Banarsidass, 1998, p. 119).
