In this film, Bidur Bhattarai presents a Nepalese mini-manuscript that contains multiple texts relating to Buddhist tantrism. This is probably one of the smallest manuscripts in the collection of the Āśā Saphūkuthi (Āśā Archives), where preservation measures are currently being implemented. On the basis of palaeographical considerations, the manuscript was possibly produced in the 19th century.
This series of short films offers brief and accessible introduction to Nepalese written artefacts, exploring their diversity and uniqueness in terms of writing, supports, materials, forms, and texts. It is initiated and produced by Dr Bidur Bhattarai, Coordinator of the project ‘Preserving the Written Artefacts of Nepal’ based at the Centre for the Study of Manuscript Cultures at Universität Hamburg. The project is generously supported by the German Foreign Office and the Gerda Henkel Foundation.
