Sanskrit Manuscripts : Śivadharma corpus

Sanskrit Manuscripts

<p style='text-align: justify;'> This palm-leaf manuscript of a very early date (1139 CE) contains the <i>Śivadharma corpus</i>. The corpus, whose earlier works possibly originated around the 6th century, usually contains from six to eight texts and deals with religious practices and doctrinal issues of the lay <i>śaiva</i> community. The present manuscripts contains all eight texts: <div> <i>Śivadharmaśāstra</i> <br /> <i>Śivadharmottara</i> <br /> <i>Śivadharmasaṃgraha</i> <br /> <i>Umāmaheśvarasaṃvāda</i> <br /> <i>Śivopaniṣad</i> <br /> <i>Vṛṣasārasaṃgraha</i> <br /> <i>Uttarottaramahāsaṃvāda</i> <br /> <i>Dharmaputrikā</i>.<br /> </div><br /> <p>The internal parts of its wood covers display illuminations of both <i>śaiva</i> and <i>vaiṣṇava</i> inspiration. The manuscript was probably used also for ritual purposes, as it is suggested by traces of oblatory materials usually smeared on the cover during worship.</p> </p>
