Zieme P. The first leaf of an Old Uyghur 觀無量壽經 "Guanwuliangshoujing" translation // Written Monuments of the Orient. No. 1(11), 2020. P. 47—55.


The paper discusses the 觀無量壽經 Guanwuliangshoujing (T. 365) in Old Uyghur. It is an important text of the Pure Land Buddhism known only in its original Chinese text. Several separated fragments in Old Uyghur are known. One fragment of the Turfan Collection in Berlin (U 1499) can be joined with a leaf of the Serindia Collection of the IOM (SI 1748). The result is presented here. One of its interesting differences is the list of 15 Bodhisattvas of which only Manjuśrī is given by name in the Chinese original.
