Collection of short texts. The first (f. 1r) celebrates the blessings associated with being a renunciant ascetic (sāṃnyāsin), such as being blessed for wearing a loin cloth (kaupīna); this work extoles the virtues of the Vedānta philosophy of Śaṅkarācārya, to whom the work is attributed; the second text (f. 1r-1v) contains four verses presented in the voice of the god Nārāyaṇa (a form of Viṣṇu). The third work is unidentified, but contains over three verses, and appears to be a devotional work dedicated to Bhagavan. The manuscript is incomplete.
