Rahder, The Hague; Nirmala Sharma, New Delhi; W.F. Stutterheim, Batavia (Now Jakarta); F.W. Thomas, Oxford; Friedrich Weller, Leipzig. Foreword by Lokesh Chandra. This volume encompasses the research of the greatest Indologists of the West from 1923 to 1973 in a pan-Asian approach. From Sanskrit they passed into Tibetan, from kavyas to the transcendence of philosophical subtleties in the Abhisamayalankara, from Sogdian to Chinese across the deep sands of Central Asia, from Queen Ken Dedes of the Majapahit to the sublime science of Maitreya, from the mudras of the Durgati-parisodhana mandala to the Ten Stages of a Bodhisattva's meditational way in the Dasabhumika-sutra which was translated into Chinese in AD 297 by Dharmaraksa, the great Yueh-chih master who spoke thirtysix languages of the Central Asian kingdoms.
