Dear Colleagues

(1) Does anyone know where there is a searchable Sanskrit text of the Mahāvastu Avadāna online? The one formerly at http://fiindolo.sub.uni-goettingen.de/gretil/1_sanskr/4_rellit/buddh/mhvastuu.htm seems to have disappeared.

(2) Similarly with a searchable translation? The versions I’ve found of the J J Jones one are frustrating to use: see (3).

(3) Does anyone understand the verse and chapter numbering of this text? The text references and translation seem to use a completely different system.

(4) Has anyone got Basak’s text to hand? If so, I would be grateful to see copies of a couple of pages.

Many thanks -
