Abstract

<p>The <i>Mahāśītavatī </i>(ŚV) is a Buddhist scripture associated with the <i>Pañcarakṣā</i>, a unit of five <i>dhāraṇī</i>. This <i>dhāraṇī sūtra</i> has two versions, A (ŚV-A) and B (ŚV-B).</p><p>In ŚV-A, the Buddha bestows the <i>Mahāśītavatī</i> on Rāhula, and in ŚV-B, the Buddha describes the ŚV to four great kings. The main common point of these two versions is their preaching at a <i>śītavana</i> (cemetery). However, many other aspects of ŚV-A differ from those of ŚV-B. For example, Rāhula is a main character in ŚV-A, but he does not appear in ŚV-B. In prior studies, the <i>Āṭānāṭiya-sutta</i> has been found to be similar to ŚV-B.</p><p>On the other hand, ŚV-B is similar to the <i>Mahāsāhasrapramardanī </i>(SP) rather than to ŚV-A. SP is contained in the <i>Pañcarakṣā</i>. For example, after the "four great kings" pronounce a spell, the Buddha preaches a better spell. In this paper, I present the key features of ŚV-B according to its Tibetan translation. </p>
