THE 

LIFE AND STORIES 

OP THE 

JAINA SAVIOR PARfVANATHA 

BY 

MAURICE BLOOMFIELD, 

Professor of Sanskrit and Comparative Philology in 
The Johns Hopkins University 

266 Pages. Octavo. Cloth, $3.00 

Almost from the beginning of Hindu time the Brahmanical religion 
of India was subjected to criticism and renewed speculation on the part 
of Hindu thinkers of independent mind, resulting in much heterodox 
teaching and Sectarian activity. The religion of the Jainas is the older 
of the two great heretical Sects which grew up many centuries before 
Christ, the other being Buddhism. Unlike Buddhism the Jaina religion 
was not founded by a single great religious teacher, but reveres tradi- 
tionally twenty-four Saviors (Arhats) which go back to an unthinkable 
antiquity. Only the last two of these have any kind of historical 
standing, and even they are known only by tradition founded upon 
more or less dubious chronicles. The older of these is P&rcvanatha, said 
to have been born in S17 b. c. He seems indeed to have been an histor- 
ical personage; at any rate he figures large in Jaina consciousness, and 
the doctrines ascribed to him are fundamental in Jaina religion. 

The present work contains the fullest extant account of the Jaina 
Savior Parevanatha's life, preceded by nine pre-births, all treated with 
the care of a chronicle of real life and with the sincerity of devout 
belief. With this life are interwoven a large number of stories illus- 
trating Jaina morality and doctrine. The Jainas are, perhaps, the best 
story-tellers of India; the present volume adds to the chain of Hindu 
fiction books a jewel of no mean price. This work should arrest the 
attention of students of Comparative Literature and Folklore as well 
as students of the History of Keligion.
