Description

The importance of the Hymn on the Life and Vows of Samantabhadra has been well known in Japan since early days, not only from the doctrinal point of view but as a piece of Buddhist Sanskrit literature accessible to Japanese scholars. The author's object in editing the Hymn is to produce a perfect Sanskrit text as far as the present source of information and the facility of obtaining the material and the scholarship of the present editor permit. 1 Jiun 慈雲 (1718–1804) and his followers were among the foremost students of the text.
