 DESCRIPTION
spacer
Some important Jaina Sutras in Prakrit language were translated into English by Prof. Hermann Jacobi, a learned scholar of the West. His translation of Jaina Sutras created a profound influence and interest amongst Western scholars towards Jainism, one of the oldest religious of India. These Sutras originally were edited and published by Prof. (Dr.) F. Max Muller, the renowned Sanskrit scholar and Indologist at Oxford, a century ago. The present publication contains the translated version of Uttaradhayana Sutra, one of the early sacred canonical writings of the Jainas. This work consisting of 36 sections is compilation of various texts belonging to different periods. It contains admonitions to pupils, explanations of four most precious things of Karman and sins etc. Jacobi has rightly pointed out that its main stress and intention is to instruct a young monk in his principle duties, to commend to him the ascetic life by precepts and examples and to warn him against the dangers to be faced in his religious life. It is hoped this publication will by welcomed by the scholars, researchers and general readers interested in the Jaina religion and philosophy.
