Historical Sources on the Loṅkāgaccha- and Sthānakavāsī-Traditions in Johannes Klatt's Jaina-Onomasticon[1]

Johannes Klatt, Jaina Onomasticon. Berlin 1893 (Manuscript Bound in Eight Volumes. Hamburg, Institut für Indologie und Tibetologie)

In the absence of extensive archaeological evidence, monastic chronologies and hagiographies, inscriptions and the information in the colophons of handwritten or printed Jaina texts are almost the only sources available for the reconstruction of Jaina religious and social history. This fact was highlighted by Walther Schubring who, in his classical work on the Śvetāmbara doctrines of the Jainas, emphasised that '[a]ll history of literature, a building, as it were, has for its ground-floor the bio-bibliographical materials.'  [2]  Schubring lamented the early demise of Johannes Emil Klatt (1852-1908) who had dedicated his short life to the study of the historical records of the Jainas. Klatt left behind the nearly completed manuscript of his monumental Jaina-Onomasticon, a collection of proper names (Greek: onoma) of Jaina authors, legendary figures, texts and place names with explanatory historical notes, handwritten in English, which is still unpublished. 'Jain research would have enjoyed the great luck of having them [the Jaina bio-biographical materials] at its disposal, if KLATT's Onomasticon had been completed and printed', Schubring wrote. 'Eight volumes from his own hand in alphabetical order contain what was within his reach to collect data concerning Jain authors and works. But he fell severely ill and never recovered. The work was estimated to fill some 1,100 pages in print, but no more than 55 pages have been printed as a specimen thanks to WEBER and LEUMANN.'[3] Few biographical details are known about Johannes Klatt. The only sources are brief notes in academic publications of his teacher and colleagues and in the autobiography of his son Fritz Klatt.[4] He was born on 31.1.1852 in Filehne, Posen, and died after a long illness in Bonn on 28.8.1908. He studied Indology under Albrecht Weber (1825-1901)  in Berlin between 1868 and 1872 and in 1873 completed his doctorate at the University of Halle with a dissertation entitled De trecentis Cāṇakyae poetae indici sententiis.[5] Klatt worked at the Royal Library in Berlin, part time from 1872, as assistant from 1874, then as Kustos (custodian) from October 1880 and finally as Bibliothecarius (librarian) from April 1889.[6] He was married to Margarete née Patzig (1861-1928) with whom he had two sons, the pedagogue Fritz Klatt (1888-1945), who pioneered adult education in the Weimar Republic,[7] and the painter Albert Klatt (1892-1970). Klatt's published research focused on Jaina manuscripts and on the history of Jaina monasticism, based on the available chronologies and biographies. In his preface of 15 October 1892 to the fifty-five page revised edition of a sample of Klatt's magnum opus, Klatt's teacher Albrecht Weber (1892: iii) referred to the 'tragic catastrophe' that prematurely ended Klatt's efforts of ten years to complete his Jaina-Onomasticon, apparently because he had 'unduly exerted himself' for this 'grandiose' achievement, and in future would probably never be able to work again 'at the same speed.' At the time, Weber still expressed his hope that Klatt would recover, which he never did. Yet, already on 21 April 1892, because Klatt was no longer able to do so himself, Weber had presented to the Royal Prussian Academy of Sciences a specimen of Klatt's work, featuring information on important Śvetāmbara commentators such as Abhayadeva, Umāsvāti, Haribhadra, Jinabhadra and all other names beginning with Jina.[8] A biographical note on Klatt was published during his lifetime by Klatt's 'gurubhāī' and friend Ernst Leumann (1859-1931).[9] It took the form of a mock paṭṭāvalī, which turned out to be one of the main sources of our meagre knowledge of the great chronographer's own life:

http://www.herenow4u.net/fileadmin/v3media/pics/persons/Johannes_Klatt/Johannes_Klatt.jpg'The chronology of his life, presented by way of one of the Paṭṭâvalîs so happily brought to light by his researches, is as follows: - Johannes Klatt: born 1852 A.D. as the son of the postmaster of Filehne (in the Prussian province of Posen); dîkshâ (matriculation) at the Berlin University 1868; after four years' study there, he took his Doctor's degree by presenting (see Boehtlingk's Indische Sprüche, 2nd ed., Part III, Preface) a paper on "Châṇakya's Sentences" to the University of Halle; 1873 'Volunteer' at the Berlin Royal Library (still earning his living for a couple of years as official stenographist in the Prussian House of Commons), 1880 'Custos,' 1882-92 (nominally also 1893) "Librarian."'[10]

In his note, published as a footnote to Klatt's last published work, Leumann also mentioned that no further contribution of Klatt 'can come from his pen', and noted the 'irreparable loss' caused by the sudden 'disappearance from literature' of 'the eminent Indianistic Chronicler and Bibliographist' 'as a year or two more of work would have allowed him to complete what has been slowly growing into shape in his study during the past ten years' (ibid.). Leumann was familiar with Klatt's work. Over many years, he supplied his friend with supplementary information for the Jaina-Onomasticon.[11] In addition to editing the last fifteen pages of the Specimen, which Klatt had prepared before his progressing illness rendered work impossible, Leumann also brought Klatt's last article to publication, and in 1893 took over the task of arranging the parts of the text that Klatt left behind. He had them 'bound into eight stately volumes' (ibid.), which his student Schubring later deposited in the library of the Seminar für Kultur und Geschichte Indiens, which is now integral to the library of the Asien-Afrika-Institut of the University of Hamburg.

Klatt's encyclopaedic compilation of literary-bibliographical information on Jaina authors, texts and biographies is still without parallel. Mehta and Chandra's (1970-72) work Prakrit Proper Names covers somewhat similar ground. But Mehta and Chandra focus exclusively on the Śvetāmbara Āgamas and their commentaries however, while Klatt concentrates on post-canonical sources from both Digambara and Śvetāmbara authors. Klatt based his work on the lists of Jaina manuscripts published by Weber (18531892), Bühler (1869-1880), Bhandarkar (1882-1897), Kielhorn (1869-1882), Peterson (1882-1899), Khatavate (1891-1901) and all other relevant textual, bibliographical and epigraphic sources at hand.[12] His search for information motivated family holidays, for instance in Italy, where he conducted research on the manuscript collections of Florence, Milan, and elsewhere.[13]

Even without updates, for the historian of Jainism Klatt's Jaina-Onomasticon is an invaluable resource. This was recognised by his contemporaries. Klatt's text was praised both by A. Weber, E. Leumann[14] and W. Schubring as one of the landmarks of modern scholarship in this field. They all agreed that the 4,132 pages long manuscript, starting with and ending with, was ready for publication, albeit with two or three years of editing work remaining.  On 15 October 1892, A. Weber (1892: iii-iv) estimated the size of the printed Onomasticon at ca. 1120 pages, twenty times the size of the Specimen, if a system of abbreviations is used to save space, while conceding, because Jaina Studies was still in its infancy, that additions could have been made already half a year later, even to the published Specimen.[15] Schubring (1935 § 4: 8, n. 2) concurred with Weber's verdict that the manuscript was basically ready for publication (albeit in need of supplementation): 'At the time, the manuscript would presumably have been ready for the press, given a practicable technique of abbreviation and onesided type.' Yet, though the work deserves to be accessible to the wider world of scholarship, Johannes Klatt's JainaOnomasticon remains unpublished to this day. The task to prepare the manuscript for the press is still a desideratum for modern Jainology.

In 2010, the Centre of Jaina Studies at SOAS initiated the first steps towards the publication of Klatt's work. With the support of the Library of the Asien-Afrika-Institut in Hamburg, which kindly made the original manuscript available, the text is currently being transcribed and prepared for editing. An initial trial for its transcription has been funded through the Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) Grant AH/I002405/1 and Leverhulme Trust Research Project Grant RPG-2012-620 has funded the production of a print edition of Klatt's text. It is hoped that the English text, once published both in print and in an expandable electronic format, will serve as a valuable research tool to future generations of scholarship.

'Luṅkā' and 'Ḍhuṇḍhaka'

The remainder of this article is devoted to a brief illustration, at the hand of two examples, the terms ʽLuṅkāʼ and ʽḌhuṇḍhakaʼ, of the difficulties faced by the editors of this text, and an analysis of the implications of the sources available to Klatt on his text. To assess the feasibility of the project, selected texts from Klatt's Vol. III and IV have been transcribed by Christopher Gibbons and the present writer. Klatt's text and the references mentioned therein were checked (as far as possible) and, in parts, corrected and re-formatted; sometimes following suggestions by Klatt, who structured his text occasionally according to the historical sequence of his primary sources, that is, mainly catalogues and reports on manuscript collections. Nāgarī keywords were transliterated into Roman script. To make the text more accessible, indentations, italics and small caps were added. For Klatt's abbreviation 'S.' (Saṃvat), 'VS' (Vikram Saṃvat) is used. Abbreviations such as 'Ḍh.' (Ḍhuṇḍhaka), 'a.' (anna), fr.b. (from bottom), 'l.' (line[s], or leave[s]), n. (catalogue number, or note), s. (see), and acronyms for references have been spelled out in this article to enhance readability. Others, like p. (page), Guj. (Gujarātī), and others such as rg. possibly referring to an officially ʻregistered' nineteenth century print publication, have been maintained. Missing diacritics, for instance in 'Lálaji' (Lālajī), have also occasionally been supplemented. The aim of consistency could however not be accomplished. Systematically imposing new editorial conventions to disambiguate Klatt's use of abbreviations and acronyms will obliterate much of the historical information preserved in the text. Klatt generally accepted the diverse methods of transcribing Indic words used in his sources and merely added analytical word-divisions. This makes his manuscript stylistically incoherent. At the same time, it offers valuable insights in the fluid state of knowledge amongst leading scholars of the period confronting a flood of entirely new information. 'Ḍhuṇḍhaka', for instance, is rendered as 'Ḍhuṇḍhakar', 'Dhundhiā' or 'Dhundiā', though only the category 'Ḍhuṇḍhaka' is listed. Instead of the now preferred term 'Loṅkā', 'Luṅkā' is used. However, another entry designating the same individual is 'Laukā.'

Only the proper name 'Luṅkā' and the sect-designations 'Lumpāka-matam' and 'Ḍhuṇḍhaka-matam' and some related names listed in the Onomasticon will be investigated here to probe into Klatt's methods and sources. Klatt's manuscript is of considerable value for identifying rare and yet unexplored sources, not least for the study of the aniconic or 'protestant' Jaina traditions, which have produced only few original texts in their more than five hundred year long history, since they put a premium on the sole authority of the āgamas. Many of their surviving scriptures continue to be suppressed by their opponents from the image-worshipping Jaina traditions. The aniconic traditions were launched in fifteenth century Gujarāt as a protest movement against the 'laxity' of contemporary mendicants by a Śvetāmbara layman known as 'Loṅkā' or 'Lumpaka', the 'breaker' of images or 'violator' of tradition, who inspired the creation of the Loṅkāgaccha mendicant orders, from which a variety of new reform movements split in the seventeenth century which are now collectively known as 'Sthānakavāsī' or 'hall-dweller'[16] traditions. One of the original five of these schismatic aniconic monastic movements are the 'Ḍhuṇḍakas', or 'searchers', called 'Ḍhūṁḍhakas', the ruin-dwellers[17] by their Jaina opponents. This particular 'Sthānakavasī tradition was created by Lavajī Ṛṣi from Surat sometime between 1648 and 1656.[18] Most of the founders of the other four principal Sthānakavāsī movements, such as Dharmasiṅha,[19] the founder of the Aṭh Koṭi tradition, and Dharmadāsa,[20] the founder of the Bāīstola tradition, and a few of their successors, are also registered in the Jaina-Onomasticon, and some of their literature.

The full real name of 'Loṅkā' is unknown.[21] Ācārya Hastīmal[22] notes that Loṅkā is variously called lumpaka (which he interprets as luṭerā, thief) or luṅgā (which he interprets as luccā, scoundrel), etc., by his opponents. A. Weber[23] and D. D. Mālvaṇiyā[24] interpret lumpaka as the Sanskrit rendering of luṃkā (lauṃkā), the 'breaker' or 'destroyer' of (the worship of) images or of the tradition (from the Sanskrit √ lup, to break, violate; lopaka, violating). See Turner (1966/1973: 643,645) on lupyatē, and for the uncertain meaning of luṅka, which he hypothetically derives from lukka (Sub. lupta). At the time of Klatt, whatever was known about the aniconic Jaina traditions was based on reports from their Mūrtipūjaka critics, such as Dhamasāgara-gaṇin (d. 1596)[25] and Ācārya Vijayānandasūri (1836-1896), also known as Ātmārāma (his earlier Sthānakavāsī name) or Ātmānanda (his Mūrtipūjaka name), with whom many European Indologists communicated via letter and intermediaries.[26] Hence, the polemical term Luṅkā was used to describe the founder of the Lumpaka tradition and the Ḍhūṃḍhakas are listed under the name Ḍhuṇḍhaka.

Most of the references to primary sources on Loṅkā and the members and literatures of the Loṅkāgacchas collected by Klatt and others have not yet been systematically studied.[27] The following are the main entries he gives on Loṅkā and the Lumpākamatam: [28]

In contrast to 'Luṅkā' and 'Lumpākamatam', 'Lumpākamatakuṭṭana' and 'Laukā', the main entry on 'Ḍhuṇḍḥaka' includes references to primary literature of this monastic tradition, in particular a paṭṭāvalī. One text, however, the Aṭṭhāvana bolo was most likely composed by Loṅkā himself.[45] Textual references are presented by Klatt generally after the historical data related to an author or tradition. However, further additions were simply appended in the manuscript:[46]

Concluding remarks

The brief review of the entries on Luṅkāmatam and Ḍhuṇḍhakamatam, etc., shows that a lot could have been learned about the aniconic traditions already more than a century ago had Johannes Klatt's yet unpublished magnum opus been utilized. Since this was not done, hardly any of the standard textbooks on Jainism offers even basic information on the aniconic traditions, with the exception of the well known work by Paul Dundas, which made a start. Even Klatt's information stemmed largely from the works of opponents of the protestant traditions. This was unavoidable at the time, since no other information was made available. The state of knowledge on the aniconic traditions reflected in the pages of the Jaina-Onomasticon is still embryonic and in itself unreliable, which probably is the reason why it was shunned by previous generations of indological scholarship.[56] However, it points to yet untapped sources the critical study of which will lead to more certain reconstructions of the history of a tradition which today comprises of about one third of all Jainas.
