<p style='text-align: justify;'>The <i>Nāradīśikṣa</i> is a well-known <i>śikṣā</i> ("Teaching [on Pronunciation]") belonging to the Sāmavedic school of recitation and included in the branch of knowledge known as <i>vedalakṣaṇa</i>. The text is divided in two <i>prapāṭhaka</i>s of eight <i>kaṇikā</i> each, and it contains a total of ca. 240 verses. It is the most important <i>śikṣā</i> as far as the connection between pitch modulations and musical notes is concerned. It is remarkable that a manuscript clearly produced in a Jain milieu contains a very technical treatise on pronunciation linked with Vedic recitation (see also manuscript <a target='_blank' class='externalLink' href='/view/MS-ADD-01924/1'>Add.1924</a>, which most probably has been written by the same scribe, since it shares many common features with this manuscript: script, paper and layout are identical, and on the paper envelope used as original binding this manuscript is numbered as 2) 2, while <a target='_blank' class='externalLink' href='/view/MS-ADD-01924/1'>Add.1924</a> is numbered 2) 3). </p>
