KeywordUigur manuscripts; Sanskrit-Uigur bilingual texts; Buddhacarita; Tridaṇḍamālā
AbstractThe paper introduces three Sanskrit-Uigur bilingual fragments, which belong to three
different manuscripts. Both languages are written in Central Asian Brāhmī. Two of the
fragments overlap; they preserve excerpts from chapters 16 and 17 of Aśvaghoṣa’s
Buddhacarita. The third fragment includes almost the entire text of Buddhacarita 15.27d‒
38a, but not in full words; most of the Sanskrit words are reduced to their first syllable. The
Sanskrit text of the second half of the Buddhacarita (chapters 14.32‒28) is lost; the
identification became possible only through lengthy quotations from the Buddhacarita in the
Tridaṇḍamālā presently studied by Kazunobu Matsuda and Jens-Uwe Hartmann. The first
two fragments (AtüHs I 25 and AtüHs II 115) belong to the German Turfan Collection. The
find spot, Murtuq, is only known for one of these two. The third fragment (80 TBI 774b) was
found in Bezeklik; it belongs to the collection of the Academia Turfanica.
