Sarvastivada Texts

Greetings


Does anyone know of anywhere where you can read the Sarvastivada version of the Sutta Nikaya?

as far as im aware the only old texts that arent pali are some chinese agamas and some Pudgalavada stuff.. let me know what you come up with
สัพเพ สัตตา สุขีตา โหนตุ

I believe that quite a lot of the Sarvastivada versions of the discourses are preserved in Chinese translation. Also their Abhidharma, which differs from the Theravada Abhidhamma. People such as Venerable Huifeng over on E-Sangha know quite a lot about this, but unless you can read Chinese it's not very accessible... [Of course, that means that it is actually accessible to a large number of people but not most of those on this Forum...]

Sīlaṃ balaṃ appaṭimaṃ.
Sīlaṃ āvudhamuttamaṃ.
Sīlamābharaṇaṃ seṭṭhaṃ.
Sīlaṃ kavacamabbhutaṃ.


Virtue is a matchless power.
Virtue is the greatest weapon.
Virtue is the best adornment.
Virtue is a wonderful armor.

Theragatha 614


Sabbapāpassa akaraṇaṃ,
kusalassa upasampadā,
Sacittapariyodapanaṃ,
etaṃ buddhāna sāsanaṃ.


Refraining from all wrong-doing,
Undertaking the good,
Purifying the mind,
This is the teaching of the buddhas.

Dhammapada v. 183/14.5

P.S.: Warder says that there are Mahayana interpolations in the text of the Ekottara "as is universally agreed."
