Praise (stotra) of the Hindu deity Śiva and a thousand of his different names. Presented as a dialogue between the Hindu deity Kṛṣṇa, the legendary sage Mārkaṇḍeya, the legendary author Vyāsa, and others. Text attributed to the Padmapurāṇa though no section, chapter, or verse is mentioned; it is employed in various celebrations and festivals honoring Śiva.
- Title from title page (f. 1r).
- Written in 8 lines per leaf.
- 20 leaves foliated 1-20, upper left and lower right verso.
- Mistakes covered over in yellow or blacked out; some corrections and extensive additions and notes in margins by a second scribal hand; significant syllables, words, or phrases highlighted in red throughout; vertical margins marked with double red line.
- Well used manuscript with residual hand oils from turning folios, especially on right side.
- Likely written in Maharashtra, as the regional deity Pāṇḍuraṅga (a form of Kṛṣṇa) is named in the colophon (f. 20r).
