<p style='text-align: justify;'>This manuscript contains the Sanskrit commentary, called <i>Janahitā</i>, on the <i>Daśāśrutaskandhasūtra</i>, the fourth Chedasūtra belonging to the Śvetāmbara canon. According to the NCC, this commentary was composed by Brahmamuni , alias Vinayadeva , pupil of Pārśvacandra of the Tapāgaccha, in 1543 A.D. The text comprises the <i>pratīka</i>s of the <i>mūla</i> text in Ardhamāgadhī Prakrit which are followed by the commentary in Sanskrit directly. It is divided into ten chapters corresponding to the <i>Daśāśrutaskandhasūtra</i> dealing with the rules of monastic life, the 30 types of <i>karma</i> that deceives the self and the striving after worldly gains at the time of death (<i>nidāna</i>). The text ends abruptly in chapter ten and the commentary on the famous 8th chapter, the Kalpasūtra, is wanting. </p>
