Q What does this line mean?
Explanation from Geshe Ye shes thabs mkhas via Roy
Geshela had to used the four interwoven commentary. There are even
different opinions among commentators. Geshe la seems to have
commented on two opinions:

1. divide som with so and ma, ma gshig means not to destroy, ie. to
maintain. Thus to to maintain shed dbye (so), ie. discrimination, with
regard to Dharma.

2. or to gloss it as "shed che ba ma byed", also in the four
interwoven commnentary, which means to not to regard one as being
strong (in the sense of arrogance) with regard to Dharma

Whether this means "the one who desires to protect his life for a long time" OR
"therefore, they all desire to keep their life for a long time"?
