<p style='text-align: justify;'>This manuscript contains the Sanskrit commentary, called <i>Janahitā</i>, on the <i>Daśāśrutaskandhasūtra</i>, the fourth Chedasūtra belonging to the Śvetāmbara canon. According to the NCC, this commentary was composed by Brahmamuni, alias Vinayadeva, pupil of Pārśvacandra of the Tapāgaccha, in 1543 A.D. The text comprises the <i>pratīka</i>s of the <i>mūla</i> text in Ardhamāgadhī Prakrit which are followed by the commentary in Sanskrit directly. It is divided into ten chapters corresponding to the <i>Daśāśrutaskandhasūtra</i> dealing with the rules of monastic life, the 30 types of <i>karma</i> that deceives the self and the striving after worldly gains at the time of death (<i>nidāna</i>). The text ends abruptly in chapter ten and the commentary on the famous 8th chapter, the Kalpasūtra, is wanting. </p>
