Kosha (encyclopedic lexicons)

[«previous (A) next»] — Amarakoshavivriti in Kosha glossary
Source: University of Cambridge: Amarakośavivṛti

This Nepalese palm-leaf manuscript, written in Bhaktapur in 506 Nepāla Saṃvat (1386 CE), under the reign of Jayasthiti Malla (1382-1395), is the autograph of a Newari commentary, on the Amarakoṣa, by Māṇikya , a work commissioned by the minister Jayadbrahmasvāmin for the sake of his son. The work doesn't seem to have a clearly identifiable title: the author clearly gives Vivṛti as the title, but at the same time he defines his commentary both as ṭīkā and ṭippaṇī; moreover, in the final rubric the work is called Amarakośa-naipālabhāṣāṭippanī.
