For a comprehensive understanding of the Jaina faith, it is essential to know about naya (system of approaches /disciplines) and pramana (epistemology). Both these are the chief mediums for knowing the nature of reality. Naya in fact is the root of anekanta (non-absolutism). As indicated in the Nayachakko (Nayachakra), apart from Acharya Kundakunda, Acharya Samantabhadra several other ancient acharyas have also written books in Prakrit on the topic of naya. The present work Nayachakko is an excellent and very important work of Acharya Mayilladhavala.
Although influenced by the Nayachakra of Acharya Devasena, it has its own usefulness because of being an authentic and elaborate work. After studying it one becomes conversant with the subject of naya in its entirety. The system of nayas or approaches / disciplines has been described in detail in this work to explain the concepts of dravyas (substances / entities), gunas (qualities) and paryayas (modes), which is very significant. A must be read work to understand the nature of reality as described in the Jaina philosophy.
