Description

Dravya-Samgraha is a Sanskritized title of a Prakrit work Drava-Samgaha or Compendium of Substances containing 58 gathas or verses. The first part extending from verses 1 to 27 deals with the six substances recognized in the Jaina canon including the five Astikayas; the second part comprising verses 28-39 deals with the seven tattvas or reals and nine padarthas or categories; and the third part consisting of verses 40-57 describes the way to attain liberation.

The last verse of the work mentions Muni Nemichandra as the author of these verses. He is better known as Nemichandra Siddhanta Chakravartin or The master of the totality of the sacred writings and is known to have flourished at the close of the 10th or the beginning of 11th century C.E. The famous General Chamunda Raya has mentioned him as his teacher. The present work includes English translation of Dravya-Samgraha and the text of Brahmadeva's Sanskrit commentary Dravya-Samgraha-vrtti.
