Excerpt from Buddhaghosha's Parables: Translated From Burmese

By a strange coincidence, I received, at the very time when Captain Rogers had finished his trans lation, another translation of the same work by Cap tain Sheffield Grace. It was not intended for publica tion, but sent to me for my private use. I obtained Captain Sheffield Grace's permission to send his manu script to Captain Rogers, who, as will be seen from his preface, derived much advantage from it while re vising his own ms. For the press.

Book Description Forgotten Books. Paperback. Condition: New. This item is printed on demand. 384 pages. Dimensions: 9.0in. x 6.0in. x 0.8in.Excerpt from Buddhaghoshas Parables: Translated From BurmeseA few words seem required to explain the origin and history of this book. About the end of last year, Captain Rogers, after having spent some years in Burmah, returned to England, and as he had paid particular attention to the study of Burmese, he was anxious, while enjoying the leisure of his furlough, to translate some Burmese work that might be useful to Oriental students. He first translated The History of Prince Theemeewizaya, being one of the former lives (gataka) of Buddha. Although this work contains many things that are of interest to the student of Buddhism, it was impossible to find a publisher for it. I then advised Captain Rogers to undertake a translation of the parables which are contained in Buddhaghoshas Commentary on the Dhammapada. Many of these fables had been published in Pali by Dr. Fausboll, at the end of his edition of the Dhammapada; but as the MSS. used by him were very defective, the Pali text of these parables had only excited, but had not satisfied the curiosity of Oriental scholars.
