Synopsis

This catalogue of Sanskrit manuscripts in the National Archives of India, lists codices which were transferred from the personal library of H.H. the Maharaja of Jammu and Kashmir to the Archives when the State acceded to India. They contain unknown texts as well as ancient versions of known texts in the Sharada script. Sharada manuscripts were insulated in the inaccessible valley of Kashmir and thus they have preserved striking original readings. The names of the three Classical cities of Rome, Alexandria and Antioch have survived in the Sharada mss of the Sabhaparva of the Mahabharata. These names have been garbled in all other versions spread over several hundred manuscripts. This royal collection encompasses Vedic texts, smrti, dharmasastra, itihasa, purana, philosophy, grammar, lexicography, drama, poetry, poetics, astrology, ritual, medicine, polity, tantras, martial arts, etc. It will open up rich source materials to the academic world for the first time.
