a1Sei [guter] Hoffnung! Du besitzest [wtl. dir sind] gute Taten [d.h. gutes Karman]. Bestimmt werden sie dich [davor] bewahren, (in der) Hölle, (bei den) Tier(en oder den Pretas [wieder]geboren zu werden). (Schmidt 1974: 403)
b4Warum bist du so bedrückt? Warum bist du verwirrt? (Schmidt 1974: 156, 159)

Commentary

Remarks

According to Broomhead 1962: 147 the two parts (63 and 59) are ca. 10.2cm wide; "[t]he united fragment is the left edge of a six line manuscript, which is clearly preserved, except for the corners which are abraded."

Philological commentary

n1aklyy: second y is like the main akṣara and not the ligature variant.
