RARE BUDDHIST LITERATURE Thibetan Manuscripts on Exhibition in the British Museum of London. At the present time when the land of the Lamas is attracting so much atten tion, it may be of interest to call at tention to some important manuscripts which are now on exhibition in the ethnographical department of the Brit ish museum, says the London Globe. In 1900. Mr. Marc Aurel Stein, of the In dian educational service, was dis patched on a mission of exploration t Chinese Turwestan, and in the regie several large cities and Buddhist tern ' which were buried in the sand, hat 'g been abandoned on account of the dry ing up of the rivers in the region. The archaeological results obtained were most important. The art showed dis tinct traces of Greek influence, as did the Graeco-Indian remains found by the late Dr. Leitner in Dardistan. Mofe important than the artistic relics were the numerous fragments of manuscripts and wooden tablets, many of them bearing inscriptions in a little known language, to which the name KharosthI has been given. The major ity of the tablets and leather rolls, some of which are indorsed in sealed enve lopes, are government orders, permits for safe conduct, and legal deeds, which, from Chinese sources may be assigned to about 269 A. D. Still more important, however, are two leaves of a holy book written in Thibetan characters. The manuscripts were discovered in a Buddhist shrine at Endere. the separate leaves being fdnnd before sacred images, being placed on the plinths of the statues; a mode which clearly indicates that they were placed there as votive offerings. It is clear that the person who deposited them there had cut the book up so as to lay a page before as many of the divinities as possible. The texts have been examined by Mr. D. L. Bar nett. of the British museum, who finds them to be of great literary importance. They form part of a very early Thibetan version of a Buddhist philosophical work entitled the "Salistambstura." a work hitherto only known to scholars from quotations in other Sanscrit works. The importance of the find is very great, for those leaves are undoubtedly the oldest specimens "of Thibetan writ ing, and they also gain additional im portance from the historical and po litical associations with their discovery In this remote sphere of Thibetan influ ence. From Chinese and Thibetan graf fite on the walls of the temple the date of these manuscripts cannot be placed 'later than the second half of the eighth century of our era. the period when the ruleof these provinces was passing from ' the Chinese to the Thibetans. They have., however, an additional importance as showing how quickly Buddhism had es tablished Itself in Thibet. Buddha died about 477 B. C. and the Buddhist creed ;was introduced into Thibet in A. D. 638; the great temple at Lhassa being burnt in A. D. 651. So that these scattered leaves prove that in less than a century and a half after the introduction of the new creed Sanscrit philosophical works were being translated into Thibetan. The fact is important as showingUbat the former estimate of the illiterate and barbarous state of this country must be considerably revised. The Increase of the Thibetan power and the decay of the Chinese influence at rhis period, now confirmed by these finds, calls attention to a very interesting inscribed stone tab let outside the great monastery at Lhassa. This tablet bears upon it the bilingual text in Thibetan and Chinese of a treaty of peace and alliance between the two nations, which was drawn up in the year A. D. 822. and some of the clauses are particularly apposite at the present time when our own mission is extract ing a similar treaty from the unwilling Lamas. After a very verbose prologue we come to the pith of the document. The first important clause reads: 'That the Chineses shall have the T'ang as sovereign, and the county of the western race shall have the Great Fan as ruler. From this time henceforth both shall put up weapons and armor, forget their differences and old grievances, and re spect the honored kinship of their sov ereigns and the ancient bonds of mutual aid." The clause as to suspected per sons Is of especial Interest in regard to the recent action of the Thibetan toward the traders of Sikkim: "If any persons are suspected they shall be taken alive, and their business inquired into, then they shall be given clothes and food and sent back to their own country." This interesting document of such great antiquity should materially aid In estab lishing a precedent for the new treaty now being concluded. The discovery of these important manuscripts of early Buddhist literature is another proof of the belief long held by scholars that many treasures will be found In the libraries of the monasteries of Lhassa, which will throw light not only on the early development of Buddhism, but also restore to us lost chapters of the history of China, Thibet and Central Asia. She Was So Good. The husband of a well-beloved de ceased wife came to see her bust. "Proy.tudy her well." said the artist; "it is only in the clay and I can still alter it." The widower looked at it with the most tender interest. "It is her very self," he exclaimed; "her large nose the sign of goodness!" Then, bursting into tears, he added: "She was so good! Make the nose a little larger." Short Stories. Apt Pupil. He But don't you think you could learn to love me? She (imthlnking'Iyi Oh T've nc doubt could.
