These manuscripts are significant in terms of their historical, intellectual and aesthetic value. Tantra apart, the text contains detailed discussions of astrology and astronomy. There is also the lesser known and rare wisdom of svarodaya. Ayurveda occupies an important thematic focus in the Tantra. Many of Indian philosophical concepts are discussed in depth in this treatise. Measurements of the globe are given which are more detailed than those given in the Abhidharmakosa, a celebrated 4th Century text authored by Acharya Vasubandhu, which is itself a veritable encyclopaedia of information. The importance of this manuscript is paramount also given the unfortunate turbulent situation in medieval India, where several Buddhist manuscripts were lost.
