Dhamma books lost in India during foreign invasion?

Post by confusedlayman »

Hey, just read that many buddhist book and information destroyed by fire and weapons in Bihar during islamic invasion in Indian country. however those books and knowledge can be retrieved when one stars breath meditation and it will lead to final knowledge so is it not a. big deal?

do you think if those books exist it would have helped us with much more information?

any thoughts/ banter?

The Pali Canon is available in its' entirety, which is vast.

No point in pining away for something we don't know about lost hundreds of years ago. Its like the Library in Alexandria-- too bad, but what can you do.
