 DESCRIPTION
spacer

In this book an attempt has been made to write a comprehensive and connected account about Jainism from 800 BC to the time of Mughal Emperor Akbar. Jainism is older than Buddhism and first to protest against Brahmanical Hinduism, though most of the authorities on Jainism were Brahmins by Birth and a few Ksatriyas also look part in the propagation.

Parsvanatha, who was the real founder and penultimate Tirthamkara of this Religious system, lived 250 years before Gautama Buddha. Vardhamana Mahavira, a contemporary of Buddha was the twenty-fourth and the last Tirthamkara of this religious system whereas Rsabhanatha was the first Tirthamkara. Mahavira made Jainism vastly popular with the masses of Northern India. Afterwards from first century BC, Jainism became popular in South India. Inspite of systematic vilification by the Buddhist and the Brahmins, Jainism still continues to be a dominant religious system in India, although there is practically no trace of the Doctrine of Buddhism, in the Country of its birth. Even now in India, some twenty million people are Jainas and they are quite prosperous.

Towards the end, this book also carries descriptive account of the well-known Jaina tirthas (sacred places) and nearly three hundred places have been discussed.
