Jaina Pāribhāṣika Śabdakośa - Dictionary of Technical Terms of Jainism (Hardcover)

by Acharya Tulsi, Acharya Mahaprajna

The bibliography of our lexicon makes clear that the original canonical works of both the traditions - Śvetāmbara and Digambara - have been amply made use of without any bias/prejudice, in the creation of the present dictionary. The canonical works such as Ācārāṅga, Sṛtakṛtāṅga, Sthānāṅga, Samayavāyāṅga, Bhagavatī, Upāsakadaśā, Praśnavyākaraṇa, Uttarādhyayana, Daśavaikālika, Nandī, Anuyogadvāra, Prajñapanā, Aupapātika, Niśītha, Kalpa, Daśāśrutaskandha, Vyavahāra, Āvaśyaka and the like, and on one hand the fundamental scholastic works of the Śvetāmbara tradition such as Niryukti, Bhāṣya, Cūrṇī, Vṛtti etc. - have become the main source for exposition on the technical terms, while on the other hand the Digambara literature including Ṣaṭkhaṇḍāgama, Samayasāra, Gommaṭasāra, Ālāpa Paddhati, Bṛhaddravyasaṃgraha, Jñānārṇava etc. and the scholions on them such as Dhavalā and other commentaries, have served as similar sources for creation of this lexicon…
