<p style='text-align: justify;'>A modern Grantha manuscript containing Bhavadāsa’s commentary on the 11th <i>skandha</i> of the <i>Bhāgavata Purāṇa</i>. In the final rubric it is stated that Bhavadāsa’s work was composed at the request of queen Uttarāṣāḍhā, who was the sister of the <i>mānavikrama</i> (zamorin of Calicut/Kazhikode) Vīrarāya. It is also said that Bhavadāsa’s work is an enhancement of the reknowned <i>Bhāvārthadīpikā</i> commentary by Śrīdhara, through the addition of the <i>padayojana</i> (same as <i>vākyayojana</i>?); but cf. NCC (Vol. 16, p. 282), where <i>Padayojanā</i> is understood as the title of Bhavadāsa’s commentary.</p>
