Tulya (तुल्य).—adj., used in a peculiar sense in SP, and as I think misunderstood by Burnouf and Kern: equal in the sense of equally available, open to choice (said of different forms of dharma, religion, and specifically thinking of the three yānas): tulye (so with Kashgar recension, text tulya-) nāma dharmadhātupraveśe SP 60.8 (prose), when entrance into the sphere of religion is, after all (nāma), alike (all the same, open to free choice); the sequal complains that the speaker has been given only the hīna yāna by the Buddha; tulyeṣu dharmeṣu SP 61.12; 62.2 (both verses). Chinese versions confirm this interpretation.
