THAMS CAD LA

Next in the commentary is thams cad la, we have talked thams cad before, it's a very common construct, means all, in Sanskrit sarva. It points to the left, so we are talking about all lhag ma, or all the remainders.

la is the dative-locative particle, we talked about this earlier. Let's use for or to as a quick way to resolve this pointer, and it points from a verb later in the sentence to the left. So the verb is next.
