Sanskrit Manuscripts : Cāndravyākaraṇavṛtti

Dharmadāsa, Dharmadāsa

Sanskrit Manuscripts

<p style='text-align: justify;'>A 15th-century manuscript of the <i>Cāndravyākaraṇa</i> of the Buddhist grammarian Candragomin (probably 5th c. CE) with its most widespread and best known commentary, the <i>Cāndravyākaraṇavṛtti</i>, for a long time believed to be the work of Candragomin himself, but now generally attributed to an author called Dharmadāsa who probably flourished in the 6th c. CE, but of whom nothing else is known (Dash 1986; Oberlies 1989). The manuscript contains the whole of chapter 1 and part of chapter 2. The text stops abruptly at the end of <a href='' onclick='store.loadPage(227);return false;'>f. 113r</a>, in the middle of the commentary on <i>sūtra</i> 2.3.37, <i>gaurādibhyaḥ</i>, as if the copyist was interrupted and never had the chance to complete the task. <a href='' onclick='store.loadPage(228);return false;'>Folio 113v</a> was left blank, although two verses, probably of a devotional or apotropaic nature, were later added by a different hand. This manuscript is among those used by Bruno Liebich for his 1902 edition of the <i>sūtrapāṭha</i>. </p>
