<p style='text-align: justify;'> This palm-leaf manuscript, probably of an early date (possibly 12th century), contains the <i>Śivadharma corpus</i>. The corpus, whose earlier texts possibly originated around the 6th century, usually contains from six to eight texts and deals with religious practices and doctrinal issues of the lay <i>śaiva</i> community. The present manuscript probably contained seven texts. However, as it is mutilated at both the beginning (the whole <i>Śivadharmaśāstra</i> is missing) and the end, it now contains only these six texts, and with several significant lacunas: <div><i>Śivadharmottara</i><br /><i>Śivadharmasaṃgraha</i><br /><i>Umāmaheśvarasaṃvāda</i><br /><i>Śivopaniṣad</i><br /><i>Vṛṣasārasaṃgraha</i><br /><i>Dharmaputrikā</i><br /></div><br /></p>
