Lokappadipakasara (14^<th> century) is the Pali text describing the three lokas (three-fold division)-Sahkharaloka (the world of phenomena), Sattaloka (the sentient world), and Okasaloka (the cosmos). This text was written by Medhankara sangharaja, a Burmese monk who lived in fourteenth century. Since then, this text was transmitted widely on the tradition of Theravada countries such as Myanmar, Sri Lanka and Thailand. Many Khmer palmleaf manuscripts are extant in Thailand. However, there were problems in the transmission process on their tradition. A number of missing or additional descriptions are found. The purpose of this study is to compare the contents of Burmese, Sinhalese, Khmer palm-leaf manuscripts with the printed texts in Thailand and Sri lanka, in order to consider the pattern of quotation among them.
