Why this is a
Masterpiece

It is a script of high historical value.

History of the Object
Forty-four pages (residues) were found, all of which were written on both sides of a sheet, so there are 88 pages altogether. When unearthed, they were stacked together, and about one-third of the left side was burned away. One of the main contents of the script is about an over 120–year-old lady called Brahmin from Badhari who had a Heavenly revelation dream and wanted to pay a formal visit to Muni Buddha. At her very old age she could not go by herself, so she sent 16 people including Maitreya to represent the Buddhas. Maitreya also just happened to have the same Revelation dream so he gladly went. The story goes on telling about testing the main figures. Finally Maitreya arrived safely and the 32 phases of the Buddha were revealed to him.
