The manuscript was completed on a Sunday in June in 1279.
According to the colophon, this manuscript was made for the annual festival of Paryushan, celebrated in late August of September by Jains of the Shvetambara (White Clad) community. A monk sits on a throne with a cloth shield in front of his face, holding his left hand in the gesture of bestowing a gift of blessings on the reverent, kneeling figure before him. That figure may be a householder monk, with no earrings in his extended lobes, but allowed hair and the wearing of colored cloth.
