The Living Messages
During Buddha’s time, the Buddha’s teachings or Dharmavinaya had never written down. After Lord Buddha’s nirvana, Dharmavinaya, gathered together in a collection called the Tipitaka, had been passed down, generation to generation, through voices of recitation of Buddhist monks for over 400 years. Later, it was first written on palm leaves in Srilanka. Since then countless Buddhist scriptures had been written and translated, from Pali to Sanskrit, Chinese, Tibetan languages with different Buddhist schools.
The latest discovery when an archeologist uncovered the oldest evidence in Lumbini’s excavation site, pointing to the Buddha’s lifetime, the existence of Buddha’s teachings, and how accuracy of Pali Tipitaka passing down by the word of mouth from generation to generation.
