Pearls of Jaina Wisdom

 
Dulichand Jain (Author)
Synopsis The study of the Jaina canonical texts paves the way for advanced spiritual thoughts. We discern to them the truth that souls are eternal, the universe is also eternal. The operational key is the theory of Karma which determines the movement of the individual soul in the material world. In the 6th century B.C. Lord Mahavira, the 24th Tirthankara revealed these truths to the world. Later his revelations were recorded by scholars and the vast storehouse of Jaina agamic literature was created. This book is a meticulous compilation of inspiring sutras (aphorisms) from various Jaina scriptural texts. The classification of the sutras under various headings is very much in keeping with the spirit of the Jaina tradition. The translation is very apt and the author has also rendered a few chapters on the life and teachings of Lord Mahavira. The aim of writing the book is to bring about an awareness and understanding of the basic tenets of Jainism. The topics selected make for comprehensive, yet simple reading. The writer's style is lucid, the impact provides a strong foundation about the Jaina theories, capturing the mind by its detached and intellectual rendering.
