Vorobyova-Desyatovskaya M. A Sanskrit Manuscript on Birch-Bark from Bairam-Ali: I. The Vinaya of the Sarvāstivādins (part 5) // Manuscripta Orientalia. Vol. 6, No 2, June 2000. P. 10-16.


The current article introduces to readers the two concluding folios of the Vinaya of the Sarvāstivādins as it is presented in the manuscript from Bairam-Ali. This section contains the colophon, which identifies the text as a part of the canon of the Sarvāstivādin school and presents the contents of the Vinaya of the Sarvāstivādins. This is the most important part of the manuscript, that is why it opened our publication of the text.

In the course of the text's publication, it has become possible to identify the text with the Chinese version. In part I, we referred to a Chinese translation of the Vinaya of the Sarvāstivādins — the Shi-sun-lii, executed in the fifth century A.D. We were told by Prof. Seishi Karashima that the Chinese version of the Sanskrit text, discovered in manuscript at Bairam-Ali, is found in the final section of the Shi-sun lü, beginning with page 423b (10). We thank him for his assistance and hope that we will soon be able to return to this text, with Prof. Seishi Karashima’s help juxtaposing it with the Chinese version.

We now turn to the Sanskrit text of the Vinaya. On fol. 80, further instructions are provided on how and with what one should dye civaras and what cannot be allowed in this process.
