Video Orientation to the University of Pennsylvania Library's LJS 425, a treatise on music or melody, adapted by the Persian scribe Ruhbānī from a treatise written for the Sultan Maḥmūd of the Bahamanids, a Deccani dynasty. The final pages in Hindi use Sanskrit terms and include a discussion of the female personification of music and aspects of Rāgamālās.

Likely written in Persia, now Iran, in the 17th century.
