Kalpa Sutra
Kalpa Sutra
Description
About the Book:

Bhadrabahu's Kalpa Sutra is the earliest account of the life of the Tirthankaras, the 24th, 23rd, 22nd, and 1st - since the arrangement of the book moves back in time. The present work should, in fitness of things, occupy a unique position. Scholars have divided this work into three Parts, viz., Tirthankaras, Church Leaders and Parjusana. For the present translation, however, it has been divided into seven Parts as follows: Bhagavan Mahavira, Arhat Parsva, Arhat Aristanemi, Twenty other Tirthankaras, Arhat Rsabha, Church Leaders and Parjusana. Among the Agamic texts, Kalpa Sutra belongs to a group called Cheda Sutras. Going by the contents of these texts, it would appear that they contain rules about personal behaviour and organizational discipline to be observed by the monks. Among the Cheda Sutras, three names usually go together which are Dasakappa-vavahara and they are compiled into one text called Sruta Skandha Kalpa Sutra is the eight chapter of the Dasa text With certain sects of the Jainas, the reading of the Kalpa Sutra during the Parjusana is a must which has contributed to the great spiritual significance of this work.

About the Author:

Professor K.C. Lalwani, a Social Scientist (Economics), was born in 1921. He was an M.A. in first class of the Calcutta University and taught Economics and Commerce in premier Institutions in India. Widely traveled in America and Europe, he had published many books and articles on Economics, Political Science, Religion, etc. He entered a new field of Jainology and published translations of Dasavaikalika, Bhagavati Sutra, etc. He was known for his lucid exposition of the subject.

Testimonials
The books arrived today and I have to congratulate you on such a WONDERFUL packing job! I have never, ever, received such beautifully and carefully packed items from India in all my years of ordering. Each and every book arrived in perfect shape--thanks to the extreme care you all took in double-boxing them and using very strong boxes. (Oh how I wished that other businesses in India would learn to do the same! You won't believe what some items have looked like when they've arrived!) Again, thank you very much. And rest assured that I will soon order more books. And I will also let everyone that I know, at every opportunity, how great your business and service has been for me. Truly very appreciated, Namaste.
