For the names leave out the initial shad (ཧར་རྗེར། ཀསཏར་མན། )
In cases like this even the single shad at the end is optional. Some
dictionaries use it at the end of each headword and some don't - It is
punctuation and doesn't form part of the name and in running text it
wouldn't be there.
for the Book title use a single terminal shad (ཏིན་ཏིན་བོད་ལ་ཕྱིན་པ།)
"༄༅།།" is punctuation - not properly part of the title
