ANTIQUE MYANMAR BURMA BUDDHIST MANUSCRIPTANTIQUE MYANMAR BURMA BUDDHIST MANUSCRIPT1126 ANTIQUE MYANMAR BURMA BUDDHIST MANUSCRIPT HANDWRITTEN WITH FIGURES 112

Said to be from 1874, who knows what knowledge is contained within these words scripted in an exquisite hand in a language that is no longer in use!

The charts and deities and incantations and spells are all too intriguing to put the photos away and get on with the day! (the actual manuscript has been packed carefully in mulmul and stored safely)

How can one work with distractions such as this!
