AbstractAfter introducing the knowledge of the Old Central Asian Uighurs about the Buddhist poet
Mātṛceṭa, the “father of Buddhist anthem literature”, and his work Varṇārhavarṇastotra
known from bilingual fragments (Sanskrit – Old Uighur) the author edits an Old Uighur
fragment of 28 lines in Uighur script of the Serindia Collection of the Institute of Oriental
Manuscripts of the Russian Academy of Sciences in St. Petersburg. It contains parts of a
translation of Mātṛceṭa’s Śatapañcāśatka, the stanzas 12 to 21 of the second chapter
(Hetustavaḥ). It can be safely shown that the Old Uighur version was translated directly from
Sanskrit in contrast to the majority of Buddhist texts that are mostly translated from Chinese.
