Date, Home, and Authorship of the LS
The LS is a part of the Lalitopakhyana (LP) which is one of the apocrtpha of the Brahmanda Purana. Since it is the apocrypha of the BrmndP, the date of the BrmndP cannot be accepted as the exact date of either the LP or the LS. It is very difficult to trace the accurate date either of the LP or the LS. But on the basis of some available sources, an attempt can be made to find out approximately the period of the work in question.
As stated, the colophon of the LS declares that the LS forms a part of the LP, the date of the LP, therefore, would decide the date of the LS. The date of the LP, Which consists of(1) the LP itself, (2) the LS, and (3) the LT (Lalita Trisati), is fixed in successive stages by DR. B. Dutta in his learned article.
