Looking for devanagari Diamond Sutra online

Anyone know where I can find वज्रच्छेदिकाप्रज्ञापारमितासूत्र in devanagari? No problem turning up Romanized versions, but I need the text in original form. Thanks!

It may not help you with what you need, but there is this wonderful conversion tool:

I thought the earliest known manuscripts are in Chinese?

And fragments in the Gupta script??

Bah. I don’t know what I’m talking about - I was sure I remembered an online manuscript archive that has photos but my laptop has gone flat and I can’t find it on my phone. I will have another look tomorrow.

Maybe this is helpful?


Gilgit script I think.

Thanks for the link to the images—fascinating.

I think I found what I was looking for here,


The earliest versions we have are Chinese, yes, but these are translations from Sanskrit, so one wants the Sanskrit to know exactly what was said. It seems that sorting and collating the various distressed Sanskrit copies is an epic undertaking. Fortunately a lot of people have worked on this famous material.

There’s also this site that has an archive of Sanskrit texts, both Romanized and not: Digital Sanskrit Buddhist Canon


Thank you! Another excellent resource to bookmark!
