Three editions of Tanjur have been consulted for the preparation of this work. The Narthang edition is taken as the base. Variant readings in the Derge edition (shown in the brackets as (D) and Peking edition (shown in the brackets as (P) are given in intented form. Forcibly and artificially coining and providing Sanskrit equivalents of the Tibetanised synonyms have been scrupulously avoided.
Properties and therapeutic utility of theses drugs mentioned before are not available in the Tibetan text. These are culled from

Dri med sel phren
by the 18th century teacher Dil-dmar-dge-bses Bstan-'dzin-phun-tshogs. The book is illustrated as far as possible for Medicinal plants.
