Chapter Summary

The Tibetan translations of the Chinese classics figure among the Dunhuang manuscripts. Already, Mlle Lalou located a chapter of the Shujing or Shangshu (PT 0986), and Y. Imaeda identified a fragment close to the Zhanguoce. The two Tibetan manuscripts that the author wishes to present in this chapter are two examples of the same text. This text is an account of wise maxims from Chinese Confucianism. As for the other Chinese texts in Tibetan, it is impossible to state if this account was composed by Tibetans or if they translated or paraphrased a Chinese account perhaps made at Dunhuang. It concerns the manuscripts PT 0987 and 0988. Apart from some variants, the text is the same.

Keywords: Chinese Confucianism; Dunhuang manuscripts; Tibetan translations
