Attack plan for data mining the Buddhacarita

This is not meant to be comprehensive, but I need to do sufficient research to write a paper. And I am adhering to a principle I last learned, that I should not stop a project in the middle of what I expected to complete, for it would do me no good in understanding the pros and cons of using this method.

So the simple attack plan is this:

1. Use the current clusters generated from the analysis of Asita’s and Subhadra’s appearance in the Buddhacarita.

2. Continue to dig into all the clusters, which currently number 126.

3. Analyze them manually to see if the clustering revealed any interesting ways to understand structure of the Buddhacarita chiasmically.

4. Report in, both here and to my professors who are or might be interested in this work.
