18th century Tibetan manuscript with miniatures

Size: approx 23 x 13 cm.


Kanjur (tib.) Is the name of the "translation of the announcement of the Buddha".

These are the "translations of Buddha's teachings and their comments


The language is written with the Tibetan alphabet, derived from the Devanagari.

Each consonant contains a so-called inherent vowel, which can be modified using different vocal signs.
Devanagari is a close descendant of the Brahmi script, Chr.
Can be traced.
The Brahmi script, on the other hand, is derived from Aramaic.
Many other Indian languages use other scripts of the Brahmi family.

The name Devanagari derives from the Sanskrit Deva (= "God") and Nagari (= "City").
Together, it literally means "city of the gods".
This refers to the legend that the script was used in a city like that.
The philosophy behind it is that when we meditate on a Devanagari sound, the written form comes spontaneously to mind.


Illuminated manuscript, truly unique for its historical as well as commercial value.
