Note on the transliteration:
The transliteration system of the BP/TLB is based on the Unicode/UTF-8 system. However, there may be difficulties with some of the letters – particularly on PC/Windows-based systems, but not so much on the Mac. We have chosen the most accepted older and traditional systems of transliteration against, e.g, Wylie for Tibetan, since with Unicode it is possible, in Sanskrit and Tibetan, etc., to represent one sound with one letter in almost all the cases (excepting Sanskrit and Tibetan aspirated letters, and Tibetan tsa, tsha, dza). We thus do not use the Wylie system which widely employs two letters for one sound (ng, ny, sh, zh etc.).
 
Important:
We ask you in particular to note the use of the ’ apostrophe and not the ' representing the avagrāha in Sanskrit, and most important the ’a-chuṅ in Tibetan. On the Mac the ’ is Alt-M.

Introduction:

Note on the Bodhisatvapiṭaka (Bspṭ) and the Akṣayamatinirdeśa (Akṣ):

The reconstruction of the Sanskrit text as in this edition of the Akṣ can be substantially improved after the Sanskrit Bodhisatvapiṭka has been made available. Akṣ has many of the paragraphs, even verbatim, and themes, in common with the Bspṭ. It may seem, as has always been the stand of Ulrich Pagel, that Akṣ is based on the Bspṭ. Earlier I thought, and wrote in my edition of the Akṣ (q.v.), that the Bspṭ and the Akṣ would descend from a common origin. However, it seems that Akṣ may belong to a slightly later edition of the Mahāyāna canon, and borrowed, as many other sūtras did, from the Bspṭ. While the Akṣ is quoted all over in the commentary literature of Mahāyāna Buddhism, the Bspṭ is strangely absent in these commentaries as a canonical source. Probably it was superceded by the Mahāsannipāta collection, which also, on the whole, seems to borrow large pieces from the Bspṭ. The Mahāsannipāta Collection, or for that sake the Akṣayamati chapter of it, even as it is worded in the Akṣ itself, is a “complete” exposition of the Mahāyāna ideology, a statement that in reality also might be applied to the Bspṭ. The details of the relations between Bspṭ, Akṣ and other Mahāyāna sūtras – their involved “intertextuality” – remains to be investigated.
