श्रीमदाचार्य कुन्दकुन्द विरचित समयसार: With Hindi and English Translation

Front Cover

 As Acharya Vidyanand writes in the Foreword of Samayasara, it is the ultimate conscious reality. The enlightened soul has infinite glory. It has the innate ability to demolish the power of karmas, both auspicious as well as inauspicious, which constitute the cycle of births and deaths, and are an obstacle in the path of liberation of the soul. Samayasara is an essential reading for anyone who wishes to lead a purposeful and contented life. It provides irrefutable and lasting solutions to all our problems, concerning worldly ways as well as spiritual curiosities and misgivings.

Acharya Kundkund's Samayasara is precious literature in Jain philosophy. English translation is useful for the modern youth, not accustomed to reading in Hindi. Presentation of the book is extremely attractive and reader-friendly.
Samayasara dispels many myths about religion and therefore this book is very helpful for all those interested in Jain philosophy. I congrtulate Vijay K. Jain for bringing out this extremely useful work.
