An English translation of the Sanskrit text found in the Potala Palace, Lhasa

From the Introduction to the Translation:
"The Vimalakirtinirdesa (The Teaching of Vimalakirti) is one of the most celebrated literary creations of the Mahayana Buddhist tradition, but until recently we were unable to see it in its full glory, reliant as we were on the Chinese and Tibetan translations, and on translations in various languages of those older versions. The Sanskrit text was lost, and despite the talent and ingenuity of a long line of translators, our view of Vimalakirti was like that of a face through a pane of frosted glass. This all changed, suddenly and unexpectedly, with the discovery in 1999 of a complete Sanskrit manuscript of the sutra in the Potala Palace, Lhasa,which allowed us at last to see Vimalakirti's features with crystal clarity."
