Sanskrit Manuscripts : Vṛṣṭicintāmaṇi

Jayapratāpa Malla

Sanskrit Manuscripts

<p style='text-align: justify;'> This quite recent manuscript (18th or 19th century) contains the <i>Vṛṣṭicintāmaṇi</i>, a "charm for rain in 34 numbered sections or stanzas" (Bendall 1883: 103), composed by Rāja Jayapratāpa Malla (1641-1674). In this <i>stotra</i> ("poem of praise"), the heroic <i>śaiva</i> king claims mastery of the Buddhist world by descending into the <i>sancta sanctorum</i> of the great Buddhist <i>stūpa</i> of Svayambhū and by besting the <i>nāga</i>s in order to bring rain to a drought-stricken country. </p>
