Translation

a1... the man... In the meñameññ*-tune:
a1+The thief of youth...
a2... making stumble, cutting of energy and power, depising...
a3+Having heard this, the worthy Maitreya... like a decrepit...
a4+... does this old age also arive for someone else...?
a5+(No matter whether) a being is rich or poor, stupid or (smart)..., old age comes (for it).
a6+Having heard that... possession...
b2... with head-pain...
b3+... having seen (him) sick..., with compassion...
b4+... as if permeated by impurities...
b5+Then Sārathi, too, ... to speak...
b6... a "sick" being having become subjected to... In the subhādreṃ*-tune:
b7not even able to speak (or to think?), he respires only with difficulty
b8Having heard that, the Bodhisattva says: ... of that one...?

Commentary

Remarks

Transcription and references have been transferred from the "Text and Reference Database of the Tocharian A Language" (Gerd Carling Lund University) (funded by the Bank of Sweden Tercentenary Foundation and SCAS).
Transcription and translation are based on Carling et al. 2009.
Fragment of a manuscript which includes A 251 - A 294 (cf. Geng et al. 2004a: 64-65). Lines a8 and b1 are lost.

Parallel texts

MaitrHami 13, 3

Philological commentary

This fragment contains part of the thirteenth act of the Maitreyasamitināṭaka; an Uy. parallel would be MaitrHami 13, 3, which, unfortunately, is missing. See also Pinault 1999: 201.
