Description
 
This collection is unique not only in that it preserves twelve codices of hitherto unknown sutras, but also in its thematic selection which leads to some interesting and hitherto unforeseen insights. Volume I includes critical editions of the twenty Sanskrit sutras, mostly later (or Mahayana) texts, together with their Tibetan and Chinese translations which are thus critically edited, and the author's English translation. The work combines all the sources and available materials, following the best possible primary and secondary critical methodology. It does not only provide new insights into the codicology of Buddhist texts, but also provides significant new material for a broader understanding of the Mahayana Buddhist literature, religion and thought.
