Sanskrit Manuscripts

<p style='text-align: justify;'> This manuscript contains an anonymous Sanskrit commentary (<i>avacūri</i>) on the <i>Daśavaikālikasūtra</i>, the 2nd Mūlasūtra of the Śvetāmbara canon. The Sūtra is ascribed to the monk Śayambhava (or Sijjaṃbhava in its Prakrit form) who is mentioned in verse 17 and 20 on <a href='' onclick='store.loadPage();return false;'>folio 20v</a>. The last four stanzas are originally taken from the Daśavaikālikaniryukti. This concise treatise deals with the correct ascetic behaviour; it consists of ten chapters (<i>ajjhayaṇa</i>) and the two <i>cūlikā</i>s. A manuscript which contains the same <i>avacūri</i> is described in Weber Cat. No. 1921. </p>
