In the following pages I propose to consider the Pali Canon, postponing until later an account of the others.
As mentioned above, our Pali Canon is the recension of the Vibhajjavdins.
Those already made known are partly Mahayanist and partly similar to the Pali Canon though not a literal translation of it.
The Pali Canon too tells us that the relics of the Buddha were honoured with garlands and perfumes.
But nothing indicates that any part of what we call the Pali Canon underwent this process.
They illustrate about 100 Jatakas, arranged for the most part according to the order followed in the Pali Canon.
A canon composed in Sanskrit and apparently later than the Pali Canon.
