Sanskrit Manuscripts : Saptavāra, Mañjuśrīnāmasaṅgīti, Daśabalastavastotra

Sanskrit Manuscripts

<p style='text-align: justify;'> This Nepalese paper manuscript contains the <i>Saptavāra</i>, the <i>Mañjuśrīnāmasaṅgīti</i> and the <i>Daśabalastavastotra</i>. The <i>Saptavāra</i> ‘Seven Days’ usually incorporates the <i>Vasudhārā</i> (substituted in this manuscript by the <i>Vasundhārānāmāṣṭottaraśataka</i>), <i>Vajravidāraṇā</i>, <i>Gaṇapatihṛdayā</i>, <i>Uṣṇīṣavijayā</i>, <i>Parṇaśavarī/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. The <i>Mañjuśrīnāmasaṅgīti</i> is a popular Buddhist tantric work, which consists primarily of 162 verses associated with Mañjuśrī, the Bodhisattva of wisdom. The <i>Daśabalastavastotra</i> is a Buddhist hymn to the ten powers of an illuminated being. According to the colophon placed at the end of the <i>Mañjuśrīnāmasaṅgīti</i>, the manuscript was written in Kathmandu (Kāṣṭhamaṇḍapa), probably in the Tarumūla Mahāvihāra (written <i>taramūdra</i>), in 1663 CE, under the reign of Jayapratāpa Malla (1641-1674), and it was commissioned by a monk named Ratnasiṃha . </p>
