This manuscript has more than 200 pages. The text is written in both the Pali and Burmese languages and records passages from the 'Abhidhamma', one of three parts of the Buddhist scriptures. Like many Buddhist texts, this manuscript would have been produced as a work of merit and donated to a monastery library where it would be used for teaching.
