I’m a student in the MPhil Sanskrit program at the University of Oslo, and I’m looking for a text to take as the focus for my thesis. I’ve been investigating the Karuṇāpuṇḍarīkasūtra, and I’m considering doing a translation and study of the fourth chapter, based on Isshi Yamada’s critical edition of the Sanskrit text published in 1968.
