Abstract

An attempt to show that when a doctrinally important passage in the Mahācetiya inscriptions of Nāgārjunikoṇḍa is punctuated properly, and its vocabulary placed in its proper context, it turns out to be yet another piece of evidence for a pervasive-though little noticed-early Indian Buddhist conception of a "relic."
