Summary

Styled after the upaniṣads, though of a late origin, likely written in the 9th or 10th century A.D. Contains a variety of mantras, especially the mantra Om̐; it refers to the well known Pravaṇava mantra, and mantras dedicated to various Hindu deities, especially those employed in devotion to forms of Śiva (such as Nandikeśvara). Text aligns itself with the Nandikeśvarapurāṇa, also known as the Nāndīpurāṇa, an obscure purāṇa of uncertain provenance. Manuscript ends with a short series of mantras referred to as the Vibhūtidhāraṇamantra (f. 2v).
