 Dravyasamgraha is one of the finest classical Jaina texts, composed by His Holiness Acarya  Nemichandra (c. 10th century CE). It deals primarily with the Realities (tattvas) that contribute to world process. The conduct required for attaining the ultimate goal of liberation follows from the knowledge of these Realities. Both, the transcendental and the empirical points of view, have been considered while explaining the nature of substances, souls and non-souls.

It will be of much use to scholars worldwide interested in pursuing the study of Jaina epistemology.

1/3, 2/3, '3/3'.
The Challenge is NOT the Environment, it is The acquiescent and/or rebellious Nature of Physical reality.
Therefore, Dream your Physical Purpose, and let your Inner Voice whisper
your Direction and Campaigns.
Act Responsibly. Breath and Meditate with Balance and Moderation.
For you Have Chosen This Path, and your allied Friends Beforehand.
Nourish Empathy.

Excellent compilation of profound literature on Jainism in English language. It is perhaps due to the auspicious blessings of Acharya Vidyanandji that such a work has come to light. Highly useful for the new generation.
