chos mngon shes rab dri med rjes 'brang bcas,

Knowledge, it is unstained wisdom and its accessories KHS

Notes: chos mngon is short for chos mngon pa, or Abhidharma.

From: Abhidharma Kosha by Vasubandhu, Chapter 1, line 5.

Abhidharma is stainless full knowing, its following included,
In order to attain it, whatever and whichever treatise.
Because for that purpose they’re completely collected in this,
Or as these are its place, it’s The Treasury of Abhidharma. DKC

(A translation of the entire second verse, lines 5-8)
