Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. G ndh r was a north-western prakrit spoken in G ndh ra. Like all prakrits, it is thus descended from either Vedic Sanskrit or a closely related prior language. G ndh r has been found written in the Kharo h script. Scholars believe that the language featured elements from the languages native to the area, as well as Dardic and East-Iranian ethnic languages, which are related to the Indo-Aryan family to which all prakrits belong. Until the recent discoveries, the only G ndh ri manuscript available to the scholars was a birch-bark scroll of Dharmapada discovered at Kohm ri Maz r near Khotan in Xinjiang, China in 1893 CE. Recently a large number of fragmantary manuscripts of Buddhist texts were discovered eastern Afghanistan and Northern Pakistan.show more
