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.).
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.
If you cannot find the letters on your key-board, you may click on the link "Diacritica" to access it for your search.

[The appearance of *Sadāpramuktaraśmi]
“Vajramati, again, by way of this [following] kind [of exposition] (paryāya), [one] should know thus: namely, that this Dharma discourse is extremely beneficial (bahukara) for bodhisattva-mahāsattvas [because it] will lead to the realization of the knowledge of an omniscient one (sarvajñajñāna).
Vajramati, formerly, in the past, innumerable, vast, measureless, unimaginable, unparalleled and [quantitatively] inexpressible cosmic cycles [ago], [and] even more beyond the other side of that [time]—then, at that time—there appeared in the world the tathāgata, the honorable one and perfectly awakened one, named *Sadāpramuktaraśmi, realized in wisdom and conduct, a sugata, a world-knowing one, a charioteer of human beings to be tamed, unsurpassable, a teacher of gods and men, a buddha, an exalted one.”
