Un volumen renovado, el [[Culavamsa]] o Choolavansha ("crónica menor"), compilada por monjes budistas cingaleses, engloba desde el [[siglo IV]] hasta la conquista [[Imperio Británico|británica]] de Sri Lanka en [[1815]]. Ambos trabajos, algunas veces son aludidos conjuntamente como el "Mahavansha".
 
Aunque no es considerado un texto religioso, el Mahavansha es un importante documento budista de la historia inicial de la religión en Sri Lanka. Como hace referencia a las [[dinastía|dinastías]] reales de la [[India]], el Mahavansha ha sido apreciado por aquellos historiadores que necesitan fechar y describir a las dinastías contemporáneas del [[Subcontinente Indio]].
<!--While not considered a canonical religious text, the Mahavansha is an important Buddhist document of the early history of religion in Sri Lanka, beginning near the time of the founder of Buddhism, [[Siddhartha Gautama]]. As it often refers to the royal [[dynasty|dynasties]] of [[India]], the Mahavansha is also valuable to historians who wish to date and relate contemporary royal dynasties in the [[Indian subcontinent]]. It is very important in dating the [[consecration]] of the [[Maurya]] emperor [[Asoka]], which is related to the [[synchronicity]] with the [[Seleucids]] and [[Alexander the Great]].
 
<!--A [[German language|German]] translation of Mahavansha was completed by Wilhelm Geiger in [[1912]]. This was then translated into [[English language|English]] by Mabel Haynes Bode, and the English translation was revised by Geiger. The revised English translation is now available on the [[World wide web]].
