Ok, Brahmi is the early writing system and Pali is the language - thanks for that.
Are there also fragments of early Buddhist teachings found in any other language or, writing system that was found in the North - like Pakistan or Afghanistan?
Those early Buddhist texts - in Gandhari - are not just Mahayana, correct?
Are the Chinese Agamas translated from a language like Gandhari or, from the Pali or, Buddhist-Sanskrit translations of earlier Pali sources?
Are the Gandhari-texts probable translations of Pali and Sanskrit texts? Or, textual renderings of a Gandharan oral tradition?
There’s a Mahayana Sutra in those Gandhari texts - correct - and a little bit of Early Buddhist teachings as well?
We’re there chanting traditions in Gandhari that were then committed to writing, I’m just interested on your views about this?
Perhaps, @brahmali may wish to help me understand these things, if he feels so inclined?
I apologise if my curiosity is inappropriate?
