Vajirasara (Pali Text in Devanagari, Roman and Telugu Scripts with English Diactrics) With English Translation

C Upendra Rao (Author)

‘Vajirasara’  is an exceptional work in the Pali language, which describes the Buddha’s words in a magical way. Buddhist moral principles, points of religious doctrines, etymology, poetics, cosmology, riddles, etc. are described in this Pali text in a beautiful manner. This Pali manuscript was edited by Prof. C. Upendra Rao, an eminent scholar in the field of Pali, Sanskrit and Indic studies. He transliterated the Pali text into Devanagari and Telugu scripts and translated it into English with explanations. Its style of presentation is impressive, following the ancient Indian style of Camatkara poems. Nineteen chapters of this Pali text are filled with riddles, grammatical notions, double meanings, acrostics, etc. The composition of this text underlying each section is mainly based on literary mechanisms and poetic games. All verses in the Pali text explain the hidden meanings of three Pitaka i.e. Suttanta, Vinaya and Abhidhamma, thus the text seems to be a brief guide to Tripitaka. Venerable LviEm (PressSirisammativonEm) had translated it form Pali to Khmer. The present edition of the Vajirasara is largely based on his Pali text of ‘Vajirasara’, which was first published in the year of 1952, in Cambodia in Khmer script. The text was published with the Khmer translation, done by Venerable Vinayadhara Pin in, who was the chief monk at the Maha Khetavana Pagoda (situated in Kandal province of Cambodia).

Vajirasara is a comprehensive Pali work where the technique of camatkara was developed by providing a scholarly background to the living tradition of Buddhism. The text became interesting with the literary talent of the author. Thus the text Vajirasara stands as a centralizing treatise of elements transmitted from ancient times. Certainly, the Vajirasara increase the better understanding between Buddhist practices and Buddhist learning.
