PublisherThe University of Pennsylvania Libraries
Manuscript presented as a dialogue between the goddess Pārvatī and her consort Śiva and is an astrological treatise, possibly a commentary on Gaṇeśadaivajña's Jātakālaṃkāra.
- Title from colophon (f. 4v).
- Written in 8-9 lines per leaf.
- 4 leaves foliated 1-4, upper left and lower right verso.
- Dated saṃvat 155 (f. 4v); this date is obviously wrong as the manuscript would then be from the first century A.D., long before paper was extensively used for writing in South Asia, so the date is more likely meant to be saṃvat 1855 (1798).
- Mistakes covered over in yellow or blacked out; some corrections and additions in margins; significant syllables, words, or phrases highlighted in red throughout; vertical margins marked with triple black line.
Extent1 9 x 27 cm
