Description

The present study Jain Agamas: An Introduction to Canonical Literature is a prolegomenary description of Jaina scriptures. In fact, Jain canon which developed through centuries and by stages took a literary and philosophical form during ten centuries from Mahavira's salvation.

The Ganadharas and Jaina Acharyas have made rich and unique contributions to Jaina religion, philosophy, literature, logic, astronomy, history geography, economics, mathematics, and medicinal sciences etc.

Basically, this study based on Dr B C Law's Some Jaina Canonical Sutras, provides clear analysis of vast Jain literature and contributes to the wider question of the growth and ramification of the Jaina philosophical and religious conceptions.
