Author: Santi Pakdeekham


The present volume is a romanized collation of four Pali manuscripts of the Jambupati-Sutra, supplemented bu Pali passages extractedfrom two old Thai-Language versions. The Jambupati-Sutra is a dramatic narrative that relates how the Buddha overcomes an arrogant and powerful king named Jambupati by conjuring up an illusory city with himself as king, in the end guiding the king to sainthood. Popular up to the early Ratnakosin period, Jambupati-Sutra is an outstanding example of the creative a pocryphal Pali literature of Saim.
