<p style='text-align: justify;'>This palm-leaf manuscript written in Nepālākṣarā contains the complete <i>Jñānadīpavimarśiṇī</i> of Vidyānandanātha, also known as the <i>Tripurasundarīpaddhati</i> (even though there appears to be also a different work under this name: see for instance manuscripts under this name in the NGMCP catalogue, and a note to this effect by La Vallée Poussin, LVP Add.2248). The manuscript probably dates to the fourteenth or fifteenth century CE. The <i>Jñānadīpavimarśiṇī</i> is a ritual manual covering rites related to the worship of the godess Triprasundarī of the <i>Śrīvidyā</i> tradition. The author Vidyānandanātha was active in South India during the thirteenth century (Sanderson forthcoming), and is probably also the author of the <i>Artharatnāvalī</i>, a commentary on the <i>Nityāṣoḍaśikārṇava</i>.</p>
