The philosophical significance of Jainism extends far beyond its statistical presence in India and the world, for it lies in the unique quality of its thought. This book is an attempt to take its insights into account for the light they shed on issues customarily debated in the Philosophy of Religion as it has evolved in the West.
Methodically explained the main features of philosophy of religion open a new horizon of thought against the superstitional beliefs. -- Sramana July-Sept. 2003
