Sanskrit Manuscripts : Cāndravyākaraṇa


Sanskrit Manuscripts

<p style='text-align: justify;'>A 15th-century palm-leaf manuscript of the <i>Cāndravyākaraṇa</i> by the Buddhist grammarian Candragomin, containing the <i>sūtrapāṭha</i> without any commentary. The initial folios are missing, and the surviving portion begins with what looks like the end of <i>Cāndravyākaraṇa</i> 1.4.12 (<i>vido laṭo vā</i>) in a slight modified form (the particle <i>vā</i> is missing); <i>sūtra</i>s 13 and 14 as they are found in the printed editions are omitted, and the first complete <i>sūtra</i> is 1.4.15. The manuscript contains all six sections (<i>adhyāya</i>s) of Candragomin's grammar.
