We are pleased to announce the addition of a new reference book to our resource library.
Jain scriputral literature is replete with technical words which are not listed in most general purpose dictionaries. To complicate the matter further, some of these technical words are identical to those in daily conversational usage but with totally different meanings.
We believe that this new addition, Primer of Jain Principles will become an essential tool for students of Jain philosophy not only as a dictionary and but also as a reference book.
We are grateful to Dr Kirit Gosalia MD of Phoenix, Arizona, USA for, both providing us with the electronic version of his English translation of the original Hindi work by Pundit Gopaldashji Baraiya and allowing us to upload it on to our web site. Pundit Baraiya’s brief introduction is included in the introductory pages of the web book .
It is our sincere hope that this reference material will prove to be of interest and more importantly will prove to be useful in improving the understanding of Jain philosophy.
