The present study is partially philological in that I edit a portion of the Pṛṣṭhapālasūtra as presented in the newly discovered Dīrghāgama manuscript. However, its primary aim is to engage a historical question about Buddhist contemplative practice. I offer a synoptic edition and translation (Part II) of the section on the "supreme cessation of perception and feeling" (abhisaṃjñāveditanirodha) of the Pṛṣṭhapālasūtra, as preserved in three extant versions, in Sanskrit, Pāli, and Chinese. This Part of the work serves to support the arguments about the history of (early) Buddhist contemplative practice presented in Part I. [Auszug aus dem Vorwort]
