Sanskrit text, Unicode transliteration and English translation by Ganganath Jha:

येन शब्दमयं सर्वं मुख्यवृत्त्या व्यवस्थितम् ।
शब्दरूपापरित्यागे परिणामाभिधानतः ॥ १३२ ॥

yena śabdamayaṃ sarvaṃ mukhyavṛttyā vyavasthitam |
śabdarūpāparityāge pariṇāmābhidhānataḥ || 132 ||

[It would be as asserted above] because all things (according to you) exist primarily in the eorm of sound; and if the sound-form is not abandoned, there can be no modification (evolution).—(132)


Kamalaśīla’s commentary (tattvasaṃgrahapañjikā):

Yena’ here stands for ‘yasmāt’, because,—you hold that primarily the World is of the nature of Sound.

The second line explains why it would be as asserted.—(132)
