Compendium of substances

Dravyasaṃgraha is a 10th-century Jain text in Jain Sauraseni Prakrit by Acarya Nemicandra belonging to the Jain Digambara tradition.

It is a composition of 58 gathas (verses) giving an exposition of the six dravyas (substances) that characterize the Jain view of the world:

  • sentient (jīva),
  • non-sentient (pudgala),
  • principle of motion (dharma),
  • principle of rest (adharma),
  • space (ākāśa) and
  • time (kāla).

It is one of the most important Jain works and has gained widespread popularity. Dravyasaṃgraha has played an important role in Jain education and is often memorized because of its comprehensiveness as well as brevity.
