by A.K. Bhattacharya

This Book in twelve chapters under two Sections the treatise presents the panorama of Jaina icons in their age-long growth, often with reference to compa-rable and borrowed concepts from the cognate faiths, Brahmanism and Buddhism. Though Jainism sub-jects in the belief in man’s elevation and emancipa-tion by himself, and therefore, has very Little, the Tirthankaras, yet in the ages that followed, there grew quite a large number of icons with extra-normal features by the touch of the waves of Mahayana Bud-dhism and Tantric Hinduism.
