<p style='text-align: justify;'> The <i>Saptavāra</i> ("Seven Days") usually incorporates seven <i>dhāraṇī</i>s, the <i>Vasudhārā</i>, <i>Vajravidāraṇā</i>, <i>Gaṇapatihṛdaya</i>, <i>Uṣṇīṣavijayā</i>, <i>Parṇaśavarī</i> or <i>Prajñāpāramitā</i>, <i>Mārīcī</i>, and <i>Grahamātṛkā</i>. This collection associates each <i>dhāraṇī</i> with a specific day of the week, a tradition going back to at least the sixteenth century in Nepal. This paper manuscript, dated 1801 CE, contains the <i>Saptavāra</i> starting with an additional <i>Mahākāladhāraṇī</i> and <i>Mahākālasādhana</i> section placed at the very beginning, and continuing with the <i>Vasundhārānāmāṣṭottaraśataka</i> in the place of the usual <i>Vasudhārādhāraṇī</i>. </p>
