An ecclesiastical chronicle by Paññasāmi of Burma, written in 1861 A.C. The first part of the work begins mit the birth of the Buddha und brings the history up to the Third Council und the sending of missionaries to nine different countries: Sīhala, Suvannabhūmi, Yonakarattha, Vanavāsī, Kasmīra Gandhāra, Mahimsakamandala, Cīnarattha, Mahārattha (Siam) und Aparanta. Then follow accounts of the religions of these countries, a separate chapter being devoted to each. But the accounts of Sīhala (Ceylon) und Suvannabhūmi (Burma) show more completeness than the others. The second part is entirely devoted to Aparanta of Burma proper. Published by the P.T.S.1897.
