The Buddhist Indus Script and Scriptures - On the so-called Bhaiksuki or Saindhavi Script of the Sammitiyas and their Canon


 

This study proves that in fact a number of original canonical texts of the Sammitiyas and some of their post-canonical works have survived. The texts are written in a Middle Indian language which it is suggested here to call 'Saindhavi'. The better understanding of the close link between the Sammitiyas/Saindhavas, the Saindhavi language, and the Saindhav? script permits to fill some glaring gaps in Buddhist studies and Indian linguistics.
