Synopsis

Originally published in 1935, this book contains an English translation of the Pravacana-sara, an early Jain text that embodies the teaching of the Digambara sect, along with the translation of a commentary by Amrtacandra. The introduction by F. W. Thomas provides background to the dialect of Sanskrit used by Kunda-kunda, the original author, and a few details on the author as a historical figure and his importance in Digambara Jainism. This book will be of value to anyone with an interest in Jain literature and scripture.
