Tibetan Buddhist scriptures discovered at Dunhuang

China View, May 18, 2005

BEIJING, China -- A group of Tibetan Buddhist scriptures has been discovered at Dunhuang Database, in northwest China's Gansu Province.

The brown papered Buddhist scriptures have been assessed by experts as precious cultural relics, written in the ancient Tibetan language.

They are believed to have been translated by Xuan Zang, a renowned Chinese monk, during the Tang Dynasty, more than 1,300 years ago.

They will be an important component of the international Dunhuang study, as well as the indispensable materials for the Tibetan research.
