    A)  Sumangalavilasini

    B)  Therigatha

    C)  Stridharmapaddhati

    D)  Ritusamhara

    Correct Answer: B

    Solution :

    [b] The Therigatha, often translated as Verses of the Elder Nuns (PBli: theri elder (feminine) + gatha verse), is a Buddhist scripture, a collection of short poems supposedly recited by early members of the Buddhist sangha in India around 600 BC. The Therigatha, the ninth book of the Khuddaka Nikaya, consists of 73 poems ? 522 stanzas in all ? in which the early nuns (bhikkhunis) recount their struggles and accomplishments along the road to arahantship. Their stories are told with often heart-breaking honesty and beauty, revealing the deeply human side of these extraordinary women, and thus serve as inspiring reminders of our own potential to follow in their footsteps.
