Gommatsara is a great work giving a detailed exposition of jiva tattva or the reality of living beings and karma siddhanta or the principle of karma as propounded in Jainism. Acharya Nemichandra Siddhantachakravarti (10th century) had produced this tome in the form of ‘Gommatsara Jivakanda’ and ‘Gommatsara Karmakanda’. With Dr. Adinath Neminath Upadhye and Pandit Kailashchandra Shastri as editors, this work was published for the first time by the Bharatiya Jnanpith during 1978-1981 with the original Prakrit text and a commentary by Shri Keshav Varni and also Hindi translation and a detailed introduction. It was brought out in four large volumes – Gommatsara Jivakanda Part 1,2 and Gommatsara Karmakanda Part 3, 4. And now we present yet another edition of the work for students of Jaina religion and philosophy and lovers of religious self-study.
This book is available in Hindi and Sanskrit translation
