      Dear Pali friends,

      Returning to the question of Pali Vimuttimagga:

      Bruce Burrill wrote:

      BB> discovered within the last 29-30 years or so, but I never heard
      BB> any details. I rather doubt it, but it would be nice if true.

      In a note in his book A Handbook of Pali Literature, Oskar von
      Hinueber says, "The 'Pali-Vim' which appeared in Ceylon in 1963 is a
      modern retranslation of texts from Bapat 1937, Endo 1983; Endo 1983
      and Bechert 1989, who also draws attention to the Amatakaravannana,
      an unedited Pali text in verses on meditation."

      Bapat 1937 is Vimutimagga and Visuddhimagga, a Comparative
      Study (Poona).

      Enda 1983 is The Asgiriya Manuscript of the Pali Vimuttimagga: An
      Inquiry into Its Authenticity. Kalyani. Journal of Humanities and
      Social Sciences of the University of Kelaniya 1, pp. 100-108.

      (Asgiriya is a monastery in Sri Lanka with extensive library of
      ancient manuscripts).

      Bechert 1989 is Vimuttimagga and Amatakaravannana, in Amala Prajna:
      Aspects of Buddhist Studies. P.V. Bapat Felicitation Volume. Delhi,
      p. 11-14.

      Can you please help to find any further details about Pali
      Vimuttimagga? Is Asgiriya manuscript available? What is the connection
      with Amatakaravannana?

      Kind regards,
      Dimitry
