Traditionally attributed to Bhadrabāhu , the Kalpasūtra is a major canonical text of the ŚvetāmbaraJains, composed in Ardhamāgadhī Prakrit, in a mixture of prose and verse, and containing the life-stories of the twenty-four Jinas, in particular Neminātha, Pārśvanātha and Mahāvīra. This manuscript presents copious marginal annotations in Sanskrit from the beginning up to f. 55v, and then again from f. 93r, where the last section called Sāmācārī begins. This section deals with special prohibitions and rules for monks and nuns during the rainy season. This beautifully illuminated exemplar can be dated to the 15th-16th century on account of the style of the illustrations, the type of paper and the script. The colophon, which is most probably not original, reveals that it was the object of a commercial transaction: it was acquired (gṛhītā, lit. 'taken') and then sold (vikrītā).
