Homage - Part 1

Next in the prologue is the homage section. We will break this to a couple of postings. We will also read this part backwards.

The ending is phyag 'tshal lo. The lo part indicates a proper sentence ending by adding this lo part to the end of the actual verb. phyag is to prostrate, or pay homage. phyag 'tshal is homage or salutation.

The la before this is a particle, oblique particle, or me as a programmer think of this particle as a pointer particle. It binds the right side with a construct to the left related to 'for what', or 'considering what.' Anyway, use the simple word 'to' just now.

So we are paying homage to something, and that's next.
