Whi. Tā. & Gr. Tā.

Blo bzang Dpal ldan Ye shes (the paṇ chen III ?) must have been a laconic man (and yet, the statement of authorship takes up a quarter of the first work). If it weren't for the shortest Prajñāpāramitā (the one consisting solely of the letter A), these two sādhanas might enter the contest "The shortest oeuvre in the Indo-Tibetan world" with good chances for the gold.

Abbreviated Sādhanas of White Tārā and Green Tārā. Manuscripts from Mongolia (19th century?), currently in my private collection. [Measurements will follow later.]
