 DESCRIPTION
spacer
This book in twelve chapters under two sections the treatise presents the panorama of Jaina icons in their age-long growth, often with reference to comparable and borrowed concepts from the cognate faiths, Brahmanism and Buddhism. Though Jainism subsists in the belief in man's elevation and emancipation by himself, and therefore, has very little, the Tirthankaras, yet in the ages that followed, there grew quite a large number of icons with extra-normal features by the touch of the waves of Mahayana Buddhism and Tantric Hinduism. The volume has treated this development iconography with references to the relevant back-drop of literature. It has taken into account the dearly forms, the Tirthankara images, studied their pedestals and followed them in their steady growth with the Yaksa-Yaksini-Sushered in Sasanadevatas. Of two very palpable groups of borrowals in Jaina iconography are the Dikpalas, both of which are studied here in full details. A chapter on the sixteen Vidyadevis, a creation of the Jaina genius, concludes the treatise, and thus fills the long panorama of Jaina iconography.
