Notes:
Title supplied by cataloger.
Written in 13-16 lines per leaf.
32 leaves foliated 2-3, 1-30, upper left and lower right verso.
Dated śaka 1751 (1829) (f. 30r); this date is not to be confused with the other numbers 18 (part of the verse numbering mistakenly written twice and should be 19) and 86 (related to plava saṃ[vatsare]). These are not directly associated with the former date and should not be understood as śaka 1886 (1964), well after the time the manuscript was purchased and brought into the Penn collection.
Mistakes covered over in yellow or blacked out; some corrections and additions in margins; significant syllables, words, or phrases highlighted in red throughout; metrical accents in red throughout.
