Sanskrit Manuscripts

<p style='text-align: justify;'> The <i>Śabdānuśāsana</i>, or <i>Siddhahaimacandra</i>, by the 12th century Jain polymath Hemacandra consists of 8 chapters (<i>adhyāya</i>) of four sections (<i>pāda</i>) each, dealing with Sanskrit grammar in the first seven chapters and with Prakrit grammar in the eighth chapter. He composed two commentaries on his work, a long version (<i>bṛhadvṛtti</i>) and a short version (<i>laghuvṛtti</i>). This 15th century manuscript contains chapter one and two (up to the second <i>pāda</i>) of the <i>Śabdānuśāsanalaghuvṛtti</i> dealing with technical terms (<i>saṃjñā</i>), vowels (<i>svara</i>), consonants (<i>vyañjana</i>), nouns (<i>nāman</i>) and cases (<i>kāraka</i>). The scribe's name Josīkṛṣnā indicates that he was a Brahmin. </p>
