AbstractPelliot tibétain 153 is a short Tibetan document containing a poem of 155 lines, being a prayer
for the rebirth of a deceased person in the Pure Land of Amitābha. In so far as is known, it is a
unique manuscript. It is here edited, provided with an English translation and a Commentary, in
which some of the possible sources of the work are suggested. The work seems to be indebted
to Chinese conceptions and formulations, although there is no evidence that it is a translation. It
thus constitutes part of the body of materials, probably composed in Dunhuang, related to what
much later and far away became understood as Pure Land Buddhism.
