Ramayana in Cambodia

Lokesh Chandra (Author) Sata-Pitaka Series

The book commences with a short wrap-up of the history of Cambodia with the  arrival of Sage Kaundinya and comes down to the coronation ceremonies of  Cambodian monarchs to whom the brahmin Grand Master hands the statues of  Lords Siva and Visnu as the keeper of Divine Values (dharmaraja), and the  Sacred Sword with the mantra "Take, for Thou art the Lightning of Indra".  The Grand Master is called Rama-rajya-adhipati. Prof. RaghuVira wanted to  publish all the 442 Sanskrit inscriptions of Cambodia in Devanagari and  their facsimiles. Prof. Coeaes sent their list which has been reproduced  here. It shows how Sanskrit was the language of the state till the 12th  century. After long-drawn negotiations the Government of Cambodia sent monk  Ven. Candravarna in 1961. He obtained the Ramakirti from his uncle (parts  1-6, 8-10, 75). He used to transcribe the Cambodian text into Devanagari  and give a resume which wrote down in English. Both have been reproduced  here.
