Gyältsab Je’s commentary on the Abhisamayalamkara – ”Ornament of the Essence” – has an outline with 25 levels and hundereds of sub-sections… To keep an overview of the structure of this text nonetheless, a visual outline can be helpful.
This outline is based on a translation from the FPMT Masters Program by Toh Sze Gee.
The download contains:
- a big diagram with the complete outline as PDF file and as PNG image
- a printable PDF version where the diagram has been split into A4 pages so that it can be easily printed and then glued together to make a paper form of the complete diagram. Note that the printed diagram will be several meters in size.

You can view the outline as a zoomable online version. Clicking on a region or using the zoom-controls at the bottom will allow you to enlarge a part of the diagram.
The outline was generated with custom shellscripts, manual cleanup, some perl and – most importantly – dot from the fantastic graphviz package. The resultant diagram was then made printable onto normal A4 pages with poster.
