- Rāmahṛdayastotra, 1783.
- Medieval retelling of the epic story of the Rāmāyaṇa, wherein the hero Rāma is identified with the universal spirit (adhyātma) and is nonviolent; narrative takes the form of a dialogue between the Hindu deities Śiva (as Maheśa) and Pārvatī (as Umā); traditionally ascribed to the legendary author Vyāsa. Manuscript, Rāma's heart (Rāmahṛdaya), is a devotional (bhakti) praise text from the opening section (Bālakāṇḍa) of the Adhyātmarāmāyaṇa to be used in private or public meditation and worship and deals with the primordial manifestation of the Hindu deity Viṣṇu as his incarnation (avatāra) as the earthly king Rāma. Opens with a series of mantras and evokes heavenly imagery (such as Rāma's form of light or jyotirūpa).
