From at least the tenth century, manuscripts were beautifully illuminated, typically with images of the deities to whom the text was dedicated and who were evoked through its recitation. This painting style developed in Indian temple and monastic mural painting, now almost completely lost. 

Early in their history the manuscripts themselves came to acquire a sacred character, becoming objects of veneration in their own right. The worship of books of wisdom (jnanapuja) assumed an important role in temple ritual. The public recitation and worship of texts, as well as the display of the manuscript itself, still forms an important part of Buddhist and Jain worship.
