A Tocharian B parallel to the legend of Kalmāṣapāda and Sutasoma of the Old Uyghur Daśakarmapathāvadānamālā.

Abstract : Publication of a fragment in Tocharian B of the fonds Pelliot Koutchéen, kept at the Bibliothèque nationale de France (PK AS 13B), and comparison with the parallel passage of the Old Uyghur Daśakarmapathāvadānamālā, a collection of Buddhist stories (avadāna) about the ten 'couses of actions' (karmapatha). According to the colophons of the Old Uyghur text, this collection was translated from a Tocharian A source, which in turn was based on a Tocharian A original. In the present case, the parallel is so close that the Old Uyghur text may have been translated directly from Tocharian B.
