Notes

On ms. PT 699, see Meinert 2007 

On ms. PT 44, see Bischoff Hartman 1971 p. 21-26, Kapstein 2000 p. 158-159, Cantwell, Mayer 2008 p. 62. 

According to C. Meinert, the names "dBu na A nang" and "'Bu na A na" are possibly two variations of the same name (see Meinert 2007, also Cantwell Mayer 2008 p. 51). 

"dBu na A nang" and "'Bu na A na", which could be transcriptions of a foreign name, have been compared to the name of "A nanta" (sk. Ānanda), a Kashmiri brahmin mentioned in dBa' bzhed who worked as an interpreter for Śāntarakṣita at the time of his arrival in Ra sa (Cantwell, Mayer 2008 p. 51, see dBa' bzhed 2010ed. p. 14, transl. in Wangdu Diemberger 2000 p. 45-46, see also sBa bzhed 2010 ed. p. 83 and rBa bzhed 2010 ed. p. 269-270). 

Another relatively similar sounding name is found in the Srid rgyud: rGya A nan u nan (see Blo gros thog med 2010ed. p. 298 : "...dang po mkhas pa bande rnams la bka' gyod btab pas / was tang la byams pa dang / gnub nam mkha'i snying po dang / snyer stag btsan ldong zig dang / bran ka dpal chen po dang / rma a tsa ra rin chen dang / rgya a nan u nan dang / nyang ting 'dzing bzang po dang / de bdun la bka' gyod rmed pas...", see also p. 299).
