Sanskrit Manuscripts

<p style='text-align: justify;'>This manuscript is an excerpt from the <i>Tattvabodhinī</i> of Jñānendra Sarasvatī, a 16th-century commentary on the <i>Siddhāntakaumudī</i>. Although the text is incomplete, the manuscript itself seems complete; it comprises one single, unnumbered folio, containing a complete section commenting on the Pāniṇian <i>sūtra</i> 1.1.36 (<i>svarādinipātam avyayam</i>). The manuscript, beginning with <i>svar iti svargaparalokayoḥ</i> (<i>svar iti svarge paraloke ca</i> in the edition, p. 243) on the recto side and ending with <i>maṃkṣv iti śaidhyre</i> (<i>maṅkṣu, āśu — etau śaidhye</i> in the edition, p. 245), consists of a list of indeclinable words beginning with <i>svar</i>, each accompanied by a gloss. This manuscript was found inserted between folios 63 and 64 of <a target='_blank' class='externalLink' href='/view/MS-ADD-02514-00001'>Add. 2514.1</a>, a manuscript of the <i>Laghusiddhāntakaumudī</i>. The point of insertion is in the section on verbal roots of the <i>cur</i> class. In this section, the Pāṇinian <i>sūtra</i> 3.1.25, <i>satyāpapāśarūpavīṇātūlaślokasenālomatvacacarmavarṇacūrṇacūrādibho ṇic</i>, is explained: the <i>ṇic</i> affix can be employed after words like <i>satya</i> in order to use them as verbs, viz. <i>satyāpayati</i>. This may explain the insertion of this folio from the <i>Tattvabodhinī</i>; one of the indeclinables listed in this folio is <i>satyam</i>, which is glossed as <i>ardhāṅgīkāre</i>. This may have been used to explain the meaning of the verb <i>satyāpayati</i>. </p>
