Dear list members,
I'm looking at the manuscript ajñānadhvāntadīpikā by somanāthaḥ
As far as I can tell there are no avagrahas in the manuscript.
For example if you look at the end of line 5 on the attached 1st folio

The end of verse 5 is संन्यासाःसप्रयोगाश्चवक्ष्यन्तेत्रसमासतः ५
Anirban Dash (and several others pointed out that this should be

संन्यासाःसप्रयोगाश्चवक्ष्यन्तेऽत्रसमासतः ५

As far as I can see there are no avagrahas  anywhere in the manuscript.
Is this normal or unusual for Kashmiri manuscripts not to use avagraha.

The manuscript can be downloaded from egangotri on archive.org from
