Title Review

The book is on the development of Jaina sects over time in India. It discusses the origin and antiquity of Jaina religion and causes for formation of various sects within the religion owing to differences creeping up between its adherents. It takes up the dissensions within the organisation of the Jaina church that led to the emergence of sects and then sub-sects. An analytical and comparative study making use of literary, inscriptional and art evidences, it deals with the various schools of Svetambara and Digambara sects in detail and the life and teachings of men and reformers associated with Jaina thought like Parshvanatha and Mahavira. It also discusses a number of concepts such as of the tirthankara in Jaina religion.
