The Pāli Tipiṭaka Recension Carved on the Kuthodaw Pagoda Stelae and Its Relation to Other Burmese Versions

Here’s an excellent detailed study of the “stone Tipitaka” at Kuthodaw pagoda in Myanmar by Mark Allon, Royce Wiles, Chris Clark, and Tamara Ditrich. It adds to our growing body of knowledge about how the transmission of texts actually happened.


Thank you for sharing, Bhante.

I remember when I was studying at UQ circa 2002 there was a PhD candidate (I’ve forgotten his name) who was working on this topic under the supervision of the late Primož Pečenko. I’m not sure how far he got with it, but it is wonderful to see these results being published.
