About The Book

This Book Was Originally Published In 1905 With An Introduction In Hindi By Lata Jaswant Rai Jaini Of Lahore And Although The Hindi Edition Has Met In An Ample Measure The Needs Of The Hindi Knowing Public Interested In The Religion Of The Jains, It Has Proved But Of Little Use To English-educated Men-more Especially To The People Of Chicago And Other Places In America Interested In Jainism At Whose Request And For Whose Benefit The Book Was Written By The Distinguished Author On The Occasion Of The World’s Parliament Of Religions At Chicago. Moreover, There Is At Present A Growing Desire Among Western Scholars To Know More Of Jainism And Its Tenets And To Them The Hindi Edition Is Of Little Use. In Order To Meet These Requirements And To Make Known To The Western World The Eternal Truths Of Jainism Which Occupies A High Place Among The Ancient Religions Of The World.
