Cāndravyākaraṇa in Copenhagen

A very handsome Nepalese ms. of the Candrasūtra/Cāndravyākaraṇa can be viewed by clicking on the above link. 

As far as I could see the date is not mentioned on the website. The versified colophon gives: muniyugasamudre ca (sic!), which would correspond to 7-4-4 = NS 447 = 1327 CE. The scribe also gives the time of the day, which is a bit unusual. I guess copying out a grammar is not an altogether unpleasant activity on a Monday night.

Liebster blog award

The aim of the Liebster Blog Award is to bring recognition and exposure to small blogs who have less than 300 followers.

Thor bu received this award on, a site in Hungarian maintained by a dear colleague from back home.

So, to keep the ball rolling, I would like to nominate the following three blogs for the Liebster Blog Award:

1. Sārasvataṃ cakṣuḥ (
2. Tibeto-logic (
3. Granthinām (
