Mahāprajāpatī Gautamī and the order of nuns in a Gandhāran Version of the Dakṣiṇāvibhaṅgasūtra

(p.17) 1 The Bajaur Collection of Kharoṣṭhī Manuscripts
Women in Early Indian Buddhism

Ingo Strauch

Oxford University Press

In this chapter, Ingo Strauch provides a translation of Fragment 01 from the Bajaur Collection of Kharoṣṭhī fragments. Fragment 01 is the Gāndhārī version of sūtra known in the Pāli as the Dakkiṇāvibhaṅgasutta (MN 142), which also occurs in the Chinese Madhyama-āgama with a title that corresponds to a Sanskrit title of Gautamīsūtra. Strauch assesses the manuscript fragment in relation to both direct and indirect parallels. He provides detailed editions and translations of sections of the manuscript set alongside other versions of the sūtra. Also included is some discussion of the key features of the Gāndhārī version that set it apart from other versions. Most notable is the inclusion of nuns on a list of worthy recipients of gifts, a difference pertinent to the role of the nuns' community with early Buddhist traditions.

Keywords:   Gāndhārī version, Dakkiṇāvibhaṅgasutta
