The Pravacana-sara of Kunda-kunda with the commentary Tattva-dipika

by Amrtacandra Suri

Translated by Barend Faddegon


The ancient writer Kunda-kunda is regarded as one of the greatest Jaina teachers (acarya) of all time. He is famous for writing essential works called sara, "essence"; e.g., the Pancastikaya-sara, the Samaya-sara, and the Pravacana-sara. His Pravacana-sara, "Essence of the Scripture or Doctrine," summarizes the doctrines of the early Jaina scriptures. Like many Indian philosophical writings, it consists of relatively brief verses, requiring a commentary to be fully understood. This book includes a complete translation of the commentary by Amrtacandra Suri, one of the only such commentaries yet translated into English. This is a fundamental work for studies on Jainism.
