This page is from the end of a manuscript, which contains two texts often paired together, the Kalpa-sutra and Story of Kalakacharya. The latter tells a story about a Jain teacher who used magic to overthrow an evil king. The lay women who listen reverently to the nuns’ teaching may be the donors who paid for the creation of the manuscript.
