Sāsanavaṃsa

An ecclesiastical chronicle by Paññasāmi of Burma, written in 1861 A.C. The first part of the work begins with the birth of the Buddha and brings the history up to the Third Council and the sending of missionaries to nine different countries:

  1. Sīhaladīpa,
  2. Suvaṇṇabhūmi,
  3. Yonaka-raṭṭha,
  4. Vanavāsī,
  5. Kasmīra Gandhāra,
  6. Mahiṃsaka-maṇḍala,
  7. Cīna-raṭṭha (China),
  8. Mahā-raṭṭha, and
  9. Aparanta.

Then follow accounts of the religions of these countries, a separate chapter being devoted to each. However, the accounts of Sīhala (Sri Lanka) and Suvaṇṇabhūmi (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.
