Lines one, two and three
The second and third lines of the
Kabul Manuscript I found to be the eka zlokI
BhAgavatam mantra.
oṁ namo bhagavate vāsudevāya mantra of the first
line is found in the"Srimad Bhagavatam"  of the Vedic
scripture.  Oṁ namo bhagavate vāsudevāya is a
princible mantra of the "Srimad Bhagavatam"  the
"twelve syllable mantra", which believed
to be the earliest mantra from pre-reformation times,
pre-dating sectarian divisions in Vaishnavism. The
Kabul Manuscripts first line is the older mantra
reflecting the same stage of writing as the Indus seals,
the lines after the first are post reformation.  In the
appendix figure 5  line 1.

The Bhāgavata Purāṇa also known as Śrīmad
Mahā Purāṇa, Śrīmad Bhāgavatam or Bhāgavata,
literally meaning Divine-Eternal tales of Supreme
God) is one of the maha (prefix meaning great)
Puranic texts of Hinduism, with its focus on bhakti
(religious devotion) to Supreme God Vishnu
(Narayana), primarily focusing on
Krishna. The Bhagavata Purana includes many
stories well known in Hinduism, including the various
avatars of Vishnu and the life and pastimes of his
complete incarnation, Krishna or Svayam Bhagavan.
It was the first Purana to be translated into a
European language, with three French translations
made also between 1840 and 1857.  The Padma
Purana categorizes Bhagavata Purana as a Sattva
Purana(Purana which represents goodness and
purity).[3] Veda
