Details

The Jains are one of India’s great heterodox communities but their doctrines are little known in the rest of the world. Among these ideas are Jain scholars’ precisely detailed descriptions of the cosmos as a gigantic theatre where souls play out their role. This volume comprises more than 100 illustrations from manuscripts of classical texts on cosmology, each accompanied by a commentary on the concepts that it represents. Slightly off-mint.
