Jainism is an off-shoot of Hinduism. But it has its won specific attributes and qualities. This book contains the sum total of the teachings and preachings of 24 Tirthankers and a successive chain of Jain Acharyas. The book will expose you to the concepts of liberation of soul, non-violence, truth or compassion. It is indispensable to those who are interested in the growth of Indian culture and ethos.

Jainism and Buddhism are the two contemporary religions which have their roots deeply seated in Hinduism. Hence, when we discuss Jain and Buddhist philosophies, we cannot segregate them from Hindu philosophy as most of the tenets and preaching of both the religions are off-shoots of Hinduism.
