Example text

Khri Srong-lde-brtsan is credited in the Skar-cung inscription (pp. 74, 75) and in DTH p. 114 with building temples "at the centre and on the borders, dbung mthar"; and some of those on the border, in the Tun-huang region, are named in TLTD II pp. 88-91. The inscription and the detailed bka'-gtsigs together thus show the existence of a considerable number of Buddhist institutions of some sort throughout Tibet and its dependencies in the middle of the reign of Khri Srong-lde-brtsan. Further information about Buddhism at that time is added in the second document mentioned in the first edict as an account of the spreading of the doctrine in both early and recent times.

In those regions many Buddhist temples had existed long before the arrival of the Tibetans who later founded their own temples and monasteries. Khri Srong-lde-brtsan is credited in the Skar-cung inscription (pp. 74, 75) and in DTH p. 114 with building temples "at the centre and on the borders, dbung mthar"; and some of those on the border, in the Tun-huang region, are named in TLTD II pp. 88-91. The inscription and the detailed bka'-gtsigs together thus show the existence of a considerable number of Buddhist institutions of some sort throughout Tibet and its dependencies in the middle of the reign of Khri Srong-lde-brtsan.

From a gloss on the last-named it appears that some of the copies date back at least to the 15th century. From comparison of RT's copies with inscriptions of which photographs are available it is seen that his texts are generally reliable. In the copies, which were apparently made by different writers, archaic orthography has usually been modernised; the reversed ki-gu, da-drag, and ya-btags in such words as myi are for the most part, but not invariably, omitted; early forms have been changed to those with which the writer was familiar; sometimes words the copyist could not read were omitted without any indication; and the inevitable errors of copying by eye can be detected.
