Analysis of extant manuscripts as primary sources of information for the study of literary traditions of medieval India is, to a large extent, dependent on the knowledge of their absolute and relative chronology, and of the development of their internal structure and format.
Possible methodological approaches and tools for acquiring and evaluating the desired sets of data are demonstrated on a small sample of text, a collection of sākhīs or couplets attributed to the mystic and poet Kabīr (ca. 1440–1518) and included in manuscript compiled by members of the communtity of Dādūpanth in seventeenth century Rājasthān. A comparison of the internal structure of two kindred sākhī collections, namely a so far unedited Dādūpanthī manuscript and the existing edition of the Kabīr granthāvalī of Śyāmasundaradāsa (1928), combined with data in the colophons of the former, and along with other circumstantial information, allows us to postulate their relationship to other preexisting models that bring us to the very beginnings of the scriptural traditions of Dādūpanth.
