Inscription at the tomb of Khri lde srong brtsan

1. Content : Stele inscriptions - Inscription at the tomb of Khri lde srong brtsan

2. Note : Complete text. 59 lines. The text is edited based on the readings of Li and Coblin (1987). The appendix is the text of ll.1-30 and ll.39-47 from the readings of Richardson (1985: 86-90) of ll.1-30, which was made by comparison with the readings of Ka thog Rig 'dzin Tshe dbang nor bu (1698-1755) and his reconstructions of ll.39-47. Note that, while we follow the readings of Richardson (1985), we use the line number corrected by Li and Coblin, as Richardson counted ll.31 and 32 as one single line. Thus, after l.31, our line number + 1 is equal to Richardson's line number.
[location] 'Phyong rgyas.
[date] 815-817.
