Enjoyed reading this book. A little gem in my introductory reading on the Jains.

Excellent source for Jain studies, however, I have only given it four stars as it is an extremely dry read. For an equally useful source that is far less dense try P. Jaini's book 'The Jain Path to Purification'

This work has become the standard introduction to the academic study of Jainism. It is highly readable and I recommend it, not just to students of religion, but to anyone interested in the Jains. It opens up this little understood but fascinating religion to anyone interested. In fact, the books that I have read in this series from the publisher are all excellent.

As a Jain layperson who has very limited knowledge or understanding of the religion it allowed me to have a sense of overall awareness about what Jainism is about. Although it did become very detailed in some parts, overall was easy to follow and understand. It showed that Jainism is a very complex religion with many different apsects to it. It was able to highlight the differences between the different sects that exist in todays society.
