  • Das Ratnameghasūtra, eine Lehrrede des Mahāyāna-Buddhismus: Die Wiedergewinnung der verloren geglaubten Sanskrit-Fassung/The Ratnameghasūtra, an important discourse of the Mahāyāna: The retrieval of its Sanskrit version (DFG)
    A xerographic copy of the Ratnameghasūtra Sanskrit manuscript is kept in the China Tibetology Research Center, Beijing. Its Sanskrit original is kept in the Tibet Museum in Lhasa, but at present it is inaccessible. The project aims at a critical edition of the partly preserved manuscript, based on the xerox copy and in comparison with the Chinese and Tibetan translations.
