    So now how could I get copies of Paranavitana’s papers .For example no 101:Mahayanism in Ceylon. Presense du Bouddhisme. France Asie, (Saigon), Vol. 15, nos.153-157, February – June, 1959, pp. 515-527, illus.

    It is very hard to get Paranavitana’s papers.

    I am also interested in all the Mahayana and Vajrayana stuff in Sri Lanka.For example : 4.Bodhisattva Avalokitesvara in Ceylon. B.C. Law Volume, Part II, edited by D.R. Bhandarkar, Poona, Bhandarkar Oriental Research Institute, 1946, pp. 15-18.

    2.The Stupa in Ceylon. Colombo, Ceylon Govt. Press, 1946, [8], 105 p., 22 pls., 13 text illus. (Memoirs of the Archaeological Survey department Vol. 5).

    Now how do I get these papers , please.

    Sincerely,
