Summary Volume two of Gandharan Buddhist Texts, a series that presents editions and studies of the first-century A.D. birch bark scrolls in the British Library's Kharosthi manuscript collection. It describes the text found on two fragments which consititute the lower part of a scroll and consists of the remnants of three sutras. The book describes the condition of the scroll and its reconstruction; examines in detail the literary and textual background of the sutras; and presents a transcription of the extant text, a reconstruction, and an English translation.
