Bodhisattva Way Of Life - Tibetan Title

After the Sanskrit (original title) we have the Tibetan title. bod is Tibet, sometimes it's also central Tibet -- Tibet is a very big area, with borderlines where other kingdoms or countries take over, but the population still speaks Tibetan -- as an example there's Mustang and similar areas in northern Nepal.

We learned earlier what skad means, language. So bod skad du is: In Tibetan.

We also went through the title earlier.

This title is very long, even for Tibetans, so they have a nick-name for the text: spyod 'jug.
