Chapter Summary

Of the huge number of manuscripts extant at Tabo monastery in Himachal Pradesh, which have been investigated in situ, registered and to a certain extent also filmed mainly between 1991 and 1998, this chapter draws attention to a certain group, namely Tibetan translations of Sanskrit texts dealing primarily with logic and epistemology. It gives some examples that clearly show that the Tabo text is in fact Dharmāloka’s unrevised translation. Some of these examples also provide clues to understanding how the revised translation was produced and how it ended up in the form in which it is preserved in the main canonical Tanjur collections. The chapter furnishes the Sanskrit texts of the Nyāyabinduṭīkā(NBṬ) and the Nyāyabindu (NB) as they are printed in the edition prepared by Dalsukhbhai Malvania (DhPr). Further studies on the Tabo manuscripts addresses questions of possible relationships of the Nyāyabinduṭīkā fragments to other manuscripts.

Keywords: Dalsukhbhai Malvania (DhPr); Dharmāloka’s unrevised translation; Nyāyabinduṭīkā(NBṬ) fragments; Tabo Monastery; Tanjur collections
