Kharatara Gaccha is the second most important of the Shvetambara gacchas.

One of the alternative names of the Kharatara Gaccha is the Vidhisangha, the Assembly based on Scriptural Injunction. The Kharatara approach to the ascetic life is through referral to the literal words of sacred texts. The Kharataras live outside the temples and the temple-dwelling monks are to them heretics who are ignorant of or misuse the sacred texts.
