This concise but informative volume outlines and delineates some of the basic teachings of Mahavira as are relevant to the real understanding of economics. Economics is the science of economic prosperity and the limitation of wealth is the science of peace.

By Jethalal S. Zaveri, Prof. Muni Mahendra Kumar
Where did the universe come from and where is it going? Did it have a beginning? How and why did it begin? What happened before that? Will it come to an end, or not? Did anybody create the universe?

Professor (Dr.) Dayanand...

Acharya Mahaprajna writes in Hindi (and Sanskrit) with great clarity. His sentences are short and his style direct... he only suggests, he never forces his view. He may assert his belief, but his language is conscious of relativity even in expression. He treads on ideas and counter ideas with the sensitivity of a classic Jaina monk...
