Prakrit Manuscript of Paryusana-Kalpasutra

M.K. Dhavalikar (Editor) Shreenand L. Bapat (Editor)

The volume presents the text of the Paryusana-Kalpasutra based on a profusely illustrated manuscript (fifteenth century CE) seen as perhaps the oldest paper manuscript of the text in the collection of the Bhandarkar Oriental Research Institute, Pune. It begins with a detailed introduction that views the history of Jaina miniature writing, Jainism, and aspects related to painting such as the technique of painting, colours used, the painting process, subjects painted and style of painting. It gives a detailed discussion of the illustrations included in this manuscript. It then provides the text of the manuscript in Sanskrit along with its translation in English accompanied by the illustrations that conform to the style of the Jaina miniature painting of the time and follow the sequence in which events in Jainism occurred.
