The early Jaina Canons contain about one-third of their contents related with physical world. The above approach directs to treat these contents as specific to those periods and as mile-stone in development of thought process. This book is an attempt to induce this approach to cover the contents in the area of Chemistry, Physics, Botany, Zoology, Food Sciences and Medical Sciences.
