SK303 - Sanskrit: Prescribed Readings I

This paper aims at familiarizing the students with (i) the different literary classes of Sanskrit Buddhist texts, (ii) the important legends, similes and stories, as well as doctrines and concepts - in their essential form - introduced in the Sanskrit Buddhist terms. Reliable English translations - particularly those whose originals form the prescribed texts for “Prescribed Texts I, II, III and IV” - will be used.
