Sanskrit Manuscripts : Keśavīśikṣā

Keśava Daivajña

Sanskrit Manuscripts

<p style='text-align: justify;'> The <i>Keśavīśikṣā</i> is a <i>śikṣā</i> ("Teaching [on Pronunciation]") belonging to the <i>Mādhyandinīya</i> school of the White <i>Yajurveda</i>. It is included in the field of knowledge known as <i>vedalakṣaṇa</i>. Parameswara Aithal (1991: 266) attributes it to Keśavarāma Daivajña, son of Daivajña Gokulacandra and adds: "The work is in the form of a gloss on nine Sūtra-s called <i>Paribhāṣāṅka-sūtra</i> also known as the <i>Mādhyandinīya-veda-paribhāṣāṅka-sūtra</i>. There are six Kārikā-s as a summary at the end of the commentary." This manuscript has been written by the same scribe who wrote the <i>Lomaśīśikṣā</i> (<a target='_blank' class='externalLink' href='/view/MS-ADD-01709/1'>Add.1709</a>), written in 1877, and the <i>Laghvamoghanandinīśikṣā</i> (<a target='_blank' class='externalLink' href='/view/MS-ADD-01711/1'>Add.1711</a>). These three manuscripts were most probably produced as a single collection, and they share many common features: paper and layout are identical, and at the beginning of the present manuscript a catch number (18) is written, which is found also on the last folio of manuscript <a target='_blank' class='externalLink' href='/view/MS-ADD-01709/1'>Add.1709</a> and on the verso of manuscript <a target='_blank' class='externalLink' href='/view/MS-ADD-01711/1'>Add.1711</a> (which consists of a single folio). </p>
