This is one Jain Prakrit Manuscript that we did:
Shiva Jiva Dashakam is yet another Sahib Kaul work that we have freshly discovered. 
Sri Vidya Nitya Paddhati a very crucial work that will shed light on Sri Vidyaism in Kashmir – that I had assumed to have been hitherto unknown based on several Telephonic Inquiries with Indian Scholars – turns out thanks to the correction by Prof. Sanderson – available as a manuscript in European Libraries and discussed by Prof. Sanderson in four of his Articles all available at his Page.
Shiva Jiva Dashakam – it is possible is really unknown to anyone.
I had a great fortune to visit Bali earlier this Month. Amongst other Wonderful things like my stay at Prabhu Darma Yasa-jis Ashram and the Satsang and the Rituals , I had the rare fortune of a random visit to a Shaman’s Residence. My causal inquiry if they had lontars ( Balinese manuscripts ) I was shown a heap of them. They were over generous and let me take pictures, I only photographed two of these which time and my strengh at that hour of the evening permitted.
These Can be now viewed at our FB Page: 
I dont have the faintest clue what they are about but are most likely in Old Javanese interspersed with Sanskrit, though my phone camera didnt exactly do an Optimal Job. Inputs by experts of Balinese Literature are welcome. I also was able to reach out to two Experts n Bali who are responsible for the Digitization of Balinese Manuscripts at and recieved a complete copy of there Digitial Efforts also available at – not least give them as mcuh eBooks/e-manuscripts as they were interested in.
And finally, thanks to this Wonderful article by Jai Kishan Sharma of Jammu, PhD Sanskrit Jammu University
