Throught his long academic career, P.S. Jaini has focused his research on the religious, philosophical and literary achievements of the Buddhists and the Jains. His papers on Jaina Studies, scattered in many learned publications, are brought together here for the first time. They cover a wide range of topics including the Jaina view of the nature of reality, the doctrine of karma, the problem of rebirth, the idea of omniscience, the aptitude for salvation, and the assimilation of Hindu myths and rituals.
