About

Acharya Umaswati is the author of Tattvartha Sutra, the best known Jain text.
The details of his life are controversial. He is claimed by both the Digambara and the Shvetambara.
He is thought to have lived around 2nd cent. CE.
It is likely that at this time, no clear division of the the Jain Sangha had emerged, and thus both sects may be right in claiming him.
