About the book

The Viyahapannatti (Vyakhyaprajnapti) or the Bhagvati, as it is popularly known, is the fifth Anga of the Jaina scripture. It is encyclopaedic in contents and gives a comprehensive glimpse of the various aspects of the life and society of ancient India over a range of several centuries beginning from the 6the century B.C.. One can learn from it everything About ancient Jainism- its traditions and history, dogmatics, the life and activities of Lord Mahavira and his attitude towards other sects and thinkers and his peculiar method of exposition and expression. The Bhagvati is also a veritable promptuary of legends and parables.Dr. Sikdar studied the text of the Bhagavatisutra with great care and patience under the guidance of two very eminent savants the late Dr. P.C. Bagchi and Dr. H.L. Jain. His studies spread over a number of years, primarily at Visva Bharati University and later on at Research Institute of Prakrit, Jainology & Ahimsa. As a devoted student of Ancient Indian History and Culture, he could with ease glean data from the Ardhamagadhi text and weave them into a connected and economic conditions, social life and education. He has also made an attempt to study the evolution of Jaina Philosophical thought as embodied in the Bhagavatisutra and also the literary value of the work.
