Note on the transliteration:
The transliteration system of the BP/TLB is based on the Unicode/UTF-8 system. However, there may be difficulties with some of the letters – particularly on PC/Windows-based systems, but not so much on the Mac. We have chosen the most accepted older and traditional systems of transliteration against, e.g, Wylie for Tibetan, since with Unicode it is possible, in Sanskrit and Tibetan, etc., to represent one sound with one letter in almost all the cases (excepting Sanskrit and Tibetan aspirated letters, and Tibetan tsa, tsha, dza). We thus do not use the Wylie system which widely employs two letters for one sound (ng, ny, sh, zh etc.).
 
Important:
We ask you in particular to note the use of the ’ apostrophe and not the ' representing the avagrāha in Sanskrit, and most important the ’a-chuṅ in Tibetan. On the Mac the ’ is Alt-M.

T.671, Bodhiruci 菩提留支, 513 A.D., p. 514c23-515a3
(23)爾時婆伽婆。於大海龍王宮説法。滿七日(24)已度至南岸。時有無量那由他釋梵天王(25)諸龍王等。無邊大衆悉皆隨從向海南岸。爾(26)時婆伽婆。遙望觀察摩羅耶山楞伽城。光顏(27)舒悦如動金山。熙怡微笑而作是言。過去(28)諸佛應正遍知。於彼摩羅耶山頂上楞伽城(29)中。説自内身聖智證法。離於一切邪見覺(515a1)觀。非諸外道聲聞辟支佛等修行境界。我亦(2)應彼摩羅耶山楞伽城中爲羅婆那夜叉王(3)上首説於此法。
T.672, Śikshānanda 實叉難陀, 704 A.D., p. 587b22-28
(22)爾時世尊。於海龍王宮説法。過七日已從(23)大海出。有無量億梵釋護世諸天龍等。奉(24)迎於佛。爾時如來。擧目觀見摩羅耶山楞伽(25)大城。即便微笑而作是言。昔諸如來應正等(26)覺。皆於此城説自所得聖智證法。非諸外(27)道臆度邪見及以二乘修行境界。我今亦當(28)爲羅婆那王開示此法。

Eng, Suzuki 1932
At that time, the Blessed One who had been preaching in the palace of the King of Sea-serpents came out at the expiration of seven days and was greeted by an innumerable host of Nāgakanyās including Śakra and Brahma, and looking at Laṅkā on Mount Malaya smiled and said, “By the Tathāgatas of the past, who were Arhats and Fully-Enlightened Ones, this Truth was made the subject of their discourse, at that castle of Laṅkā on the mountain-peak of Malaya, —the Truth realisable by noble wisdom in one's inmost self, which is beyond the reasoning knowledge of the philosophers as well as the state of consciousness of the Śrāvakas and Pratyekabuddhas.1 I, too, would now for the sake of Rāvaṇa, Overlord of the Yakshas, discourse on this Truth.”
1. The Sanskrit text is here certainly at fault; there ought to be a negative particle somewhere in this passage, which is the case in the Chinese translations.
