Simple Words - SNA TSHOGS

There's a reason we look at sna tshogs next, it means myriad, variety, manifold...

me tog sna tshogs - multitude of flowers
'jig rten sna tshogs - multitude of worlds, myriad worlds
las sna tshogs - various work, various karmas
las sna tshogs pa - jack of all trades!

It's usually interesting to break down the world to parts, tshogs means group, assemblage, accumulation. Now, sna usually means nose, but in this case it's kind, part, portion... So roughly, the rough transliteration is accumulation of parts.
