Old Tibetan documents are the oldest extant monuments of the Tibetan
language. Their exploration, although successfully flourishing in the
last two decades, has been considerably impeded by often
unintelligible and obsolete vocabulary that was bound to the
particular cultural and political context of the Tibetan Empire that
collapsed in the 840s CE. The present publication aims at clarifying a
part of this vocabulary by examining nearly 400 Old Tibetan compounds.
In Part I an attempt has been undertaken to define a compound and to
provide the first linguistic classification of Old Tibetan compounds.
Part II concentrates on a lexicological analysis of the compounds and
strives to explain their etymology, word-formation, and usage in Old

Bhāskarakaṇṭhas Cittānubodhaśāstra. Kritische Edition der ersten drei
Kapitel nebst Erstedition des Autokommentars.
Von Stanislav Jager. Marburg 2018. xv, 407 S.
Price: 52 Euro
The Kashmiri scholar Rājānaka Bhāskarakaṇṭha (fl. 1725–1775) has been
known and appreciated above all as a commentator on important
philosophical works. Less well-known is his independent philosophical
masterpiece Cittānubodhaśāstra, which, containing nearly 5,000 stanzas
in 15 chapters, is of considerable extent. Standing in the
autochthonous tradition of the Pratyabhijñā doctrine founded by
Utpaladeva and further developed by Abhinavagupta, he does not
hesitate to set his own marks, though. The present book features the
critical edition of the Sanskrit text of the first three chapters of
this work and, for the first time, the corresponding auto-commentary.
