Commentary

Philological commentary

Contains the closing verses of the Mahāsamājasūtra on the recto side; the verso side contains the antaroddāna/summary in line b1, the scribe's wish in TB (line b2), and three lines of an unidentified Sanskrit text.

Remarks

This fragment is the left part of a leaf keeping the left margin. PK NS 900 directly connects to it in the top right (resp. bottom right) corner. Leaf number 8 on the verso side. The colophon/the scribe's wish is in TB. Completed by m-psbl17 (Pinault 2007: 208)?
