We don't doubt the existence of Spider-Man or Harry Potter, and we have real feelings about these purely imaginary beings.

Again and again, in the course of them, I have marked the... More > very humble scope intended; which is, not to treat any special branch of scientific Celtic studies, but to point out the many directions in which the results of those studies offer matter of general interest, and to insist on the benefit we may all derive from knowing the Celt and things Celtic more thoroughly.

Sarvastivada Literature By Anukul Chandra Banerjee

The part of most enduring importance is the detailed paraphrase summary including references... More > to the Tibetan translation of the Sarvastivada Vinayavastu.

Apparently pages 24 to 89 are missing from this pdf, apologies for this. If you're desperate for the complete file, I may have the missing pages in jpeg format on backup disc, email me.< Less
