Parallel to this, 35 Whilst simile -lA contains the introductory fonnula rigs kyi bu dag 'di Ita ste dper na / (Skt. *tadyathapi nama kulaputral;), which is the common fonnulation applied in all other eight similes, in OM the introduction runs rigs kyi bu dag ji Itar. ) 30 again from OM onwards, there is a different term to denote a very high number. Whereas up to OJ we find kotiniyutasatasahasra, from OM onwards we [md only kotisatasahasra.

The bodhisattvas "apply themselves" to his teaching and fmally become buddhas. The simile begun in OM is thus expanded on logically and is rounded off at the end of lB. The paradigmatic statement at the beginning of lB, on the other hand, is not part of the simile.
