Summary

Small manuscript for private use, recitation, and prayer, celebrating the Śiva liṅga named Vīreśvara and narrated by the legendary figure Viśvānara. The first eight verses (chapter 10.131-138 of the Kāśīkhaṇḍa) consist of a stotra sung by Viśvānara upon seeing a child he took to be a form of Śiva (Vīreśvara); the rest of the text deals with how he obtained a son of his own and the benefits that result (such as obtaining a son) from the performance/recitation of the stotra.
