Example text

When Khri Lde-srong-brtsan, following the example of his father, took an oath to maintain the Buddhist religion Ban-de Myang Ting-'dzin was one of the principal witnesses next to the great minister Ban-de Bran-ka Dpal-gyi yon-tan. A copy of his edict, like that of Khri Srong-lde-brtsan, is preserved in PT ja ff. 128b-130b. Mention of Myang Ting-'dzin in later histories is not always reconcilable with the evidence of the Zhwa'i inscriptions. He was of special interest to 'Gos Lo-tsa-ba because of the tradition that he was the transmitter of the snying-thig which was taught to him by Vimalamitra.

Rje-blon. Thomas, TLTO II translates "eminent counsellor". Dagyab's dictionary gives "king and ministers" and see the Rkongpo inscription where the two words are separated by a shad (see p. 70). 31 REIGN OF KHRI SRONG-LDE-BRTSAN 755-c. D. The Bell at Bsam-yas Hanging at the entrance to the gtsug-/ag-khang of Bsam-yas is a fine bronze bell of Chinese design. An inscription in two lines runs round the upper part. It is divided into panels by vertical strapwork decoration. The text has been published by Tucci in TTK pp.

D. D. (J. Kolmas, Archiv Orienttlini 1966); and although he figures as the principal witness to Khri Lde-srongbrtsan's edict to maintain Buddhism that seems to be later than the first Zhwa'i edict for there is no mention there of Mu-rug brtsan. There is a uniquely personal character in the Zhwa'i inscriptions. The words "I". "me", "by me" etc. are used throughout and the expressions of gratitude have the ring of genuine warmth and affection. In the other inscriptions of the period nged(l) appears once only, in the Skar-cung edict.
