Author Pranabhananda Jash
Year 1989
Binding HB
ISBN 8121504511, 9788121504515
Annotation
The Present Volume Is A Detailed Study Of The History Of Some Aspects Of The Jainas With An Introductory Note On The Emergence Of The Parivrajaka Sect In General And The Jaina Parivrajaka In Particular In The Context Of The Profound Turmoil That Has Taken Place In Indian Religious Life And Thought In The Sixth-Fifth Centuries Bc. It Highlights The Emergence Of New Trends Of Thought And Belief Represented By Diverse Sects And Schools Which Clashed With The Orthodox And Conservative Patterns Of Behaviour. Adequate Attention Has Been Given For Obtaining An Objective Picture Of Contemporary Religious Schools And Their Respective Views And Tenets: It Is A Modest Effort To Identify The Dimension Of Groups Organised Around Religious Ideas Of Both The Theists And The Atheists. Apart From Introducing The Tirthankaras With Teachings And Tenets: Nature And Characteristic Features Of The Jaina Monastic Order-Manuals For The Jaina Works-Jaina Canonical Texts And The Distribution Of This Faith In Different Regions, In The Light Of Historical Perspective, The Book Has Been Further Enriched By The Incorporation Of An Appendix On The Ajivikas To Show That In Spite Of Their Having Ideological Proximity With The Jainas, The General Philosophy Of The Ajivikas, I.e., The Doctrine Of Niyati (Fate), Has Nothing To Do With Jainism.
