The Sequence of the numbers is based on a systematical order of the narrations.The names of the stories are taken from Buddhist Sanskrit Literature.In the case of stories of the Buddha's former existences,it is mostly the personal name of the protagonist or the species of animal to which he belongs.The headings summarise the actions or the fate of the respective protagonist.The contents present the version(given in brackets at the start) of the story in question which is nearest in content to the painting.The picture descriptions interpret such figures and actions as are essential for the comprehension of the plot as the painter wished to express it and name the scenery which is expressed by the painted accessories.Cop.Copies of the Ajanta paintings were made by Robert Gill and his Indian colleagues around the middle of the nineteenth century.Repr.Reproductionsof Ajanta paintings given in the publications listed in the bibliography have been noted as completely as possible,as they are indispensable for the examination of colours and style.Ident.Identifications of previous authors concerned mostly the contents of the pictures in general.Descr.Descriptions of the painting by earlier author are referred to,because,in spite of false suppositions about the contents of the picture,such descriptions may contain infromation on important cultrual details.Lit.Literery works narrating the stories represented in the paintings have been quoted as completely as possible according to text editions.Rel.Reliefs which originate from the same periods as the paintings have been documented as completely as possible.Paint.Paintings which have been presented in Central Asia and,in some cases,in Ceylon,have been documented as parallels to the Ajanta paintings according to the standard publications.
