Sanskrit Manuscripts : Avadānaśataka


Sanskrit Manuscripts

<p style='text-align: justify;'> The <i>Avadānaśataka</i> is an ancient collection of Buddhist legends, its first redaction dating to the first centuries of the CE. It was translated into Chinese and Tibetan during the first millennium CE, gaining large popularity across Asia. This Nepalese manuscript, dated 1645 CE, is the one on which J. Speyer based his <i>editio princeps</i> of 1902. Older fragmentary palm leaf manuscripts have survived, but this is the oldest complete source for the reconstruction of the text. </p>
