Domoko. 0124. One leaf, of which R. side has been torn off about 21" with loss of from 5 to 7 letters in each line. Size 104" x 3s". Pl. CXXI.
Writing medium sized, nearly upright. The leaf was doubled up with some other leaves, and damp has caused some of the letters of another leaf to be impressed on this in places, and so to confuse the writing. Paper brown.
The contents are verses, mainly in the Upajàti metre, but the scansion is at times irregular (really Prakritic or Pall) and a pada has sometimes a twelfth syllable, so resembling the Vathsasthavila metre.
The language is Piakrit or Pàli partially Sanskritized. This passage is in the Saddharmapujdarika, Kern—Nanjio's edn., i. p. 12, verses 3o f.
Domoko. 0167. Frs. of various MSS., which have been crushed together and have decayed. Most of them are little better than pulp mixed with dust. Some have now been separated out in three packets, which show (r) large Bràhmi letters, (2) smaller Bràhmi letters, and (3) Tibetan
and other characters.
Far. or. Thickish brown paper. 3" x 3", from middle portion of a leaf. upright. Rev. frayed and indistinct.
Far. 02. Fr., triangular, 4" x 41". and probably part of the same MS. of cord-hole the full width was about page. From middle portion of leaf.
Far. 03. Coarse paper, ochre coloured. Fr., triangular,
2r x 3f". Writing rather small, somewhat slanting. From middle portion of leaf.
Far. 04. Paper ochre coloured. Fr., 24" x 24". Writing of medium size, upright ; letters very thick, squat. From middle portion of leaf.
Far. 06. A multitude of small and very small fragments belonging to many MSS., written by different hands. Paper generally light brown.
One set has very large letters ; another small script; another some peculiar marks ; and a separate piece has what looks like scribbling.
Far. 07. Brown paper. Very large sheet, 23k" x 74"
Edges frayed, especially the left margin, and in right portion a triangular piece has been frayed away completely. The side which is marked ' Far. o7 ' appears to be the rev. and the other side is taken as the obv. It has one cord-hole in middle, and 6" from left edge, within a circle of r".diameter. Pl. CXXI.
The writing is large, very thick, nearly upright. It is in very fair preservation except in places, especially on the R. and L. sides. R. portion of leaf on rev. was folded obliquely over, and some of the letters on it have been impressed by damp obliquely on main part of leaf.
On the reverse is a large circle, 2" in diameter, with its centre 21" from the left edge, breaking the continuity of lines 9-12. Visarga, sometimes rightly placed and sometimes wrongly, appears really to be a mark of punctuation, and is not treated as here. In line 8 of the reverse ends the 84th section called the .Sinyalâparivarla ; and the next section begins apparently near the beginning of line 9, which shows that this is a treatise on the Prajnà-pàramitàs.
