  • Sabda-word
  • Artha-object
  • Pratyayanam-mental content
  • Itaretaradhyasat-because of mental superimposition
  • Sankara-confusion
  • Tat-that
  • Pravibhaga-separate
  • Samyamat-by samyama
  • Sarvabhuta-all living beings
  • Ruta-speech
  • Jnanam-knowledge

The word, object and mental content are in a confused condition because of mutual superimposition. By practicing smyama on them separately, knowledge of the speech of all beings arises.
