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

अतः पूर्वोक्तया युक्त्या त्वत्पक्षेऽप्यनवस्थितिः ।
प्रमाणत्वाप्रमाणत्वे यथायोगमतः स्थितेः ॥ ३०२९ ॥

ataḥ pūrvoktayā yuktyā tvatpakṣe'pyanavasthitiḥ |
pramāṇatvāpramāṇatve yathāyogamataḥ sthiteḥ || 3029 ||

Thus, in accordance with the reasoning set forth previously, there is infinite regress involved under your view also. and validity and invalidity remain as they are in reality.—(3029)


Kamalaśīla’s commentary (tattvasaṃgrahapañjikā):

It has been asserted, in Text 2885, that—“under the view of self-validity, there is no Infinite Regress, etc. etc.”.

The answer to this is as follows:—[see verse 3029 above]

The reasoning set forth previously’—i.e. the one set forth under Text 3004 et seq.—(3029)
