An Introduction To Terapanth: [18] Achievements in the Field of Literature

Published: 18.11.2008

The Terapantha order has made important contribution to the field of not only religious literature but also to that of other kinds of books. Acharya Bhikshu himself composed literature about 38,000 verses in Rajasthani language and Jayacharya created a new record by composing 35,000 verses. Under the patronage of Acharya Shri Tulsi, the work of producing critical editions of the Jain Agamas was started and many monks and nuns actively engaged in this work.

A historical synod under Acharya Shri Tulsi as the Synod-chief took place for critically editing, translating and writing annotations on the Prakrit canonical texts. Acharya Mahaprajnaji is the chief editor of the series. The critical edition of all the 32 canonical texts has been published. The texts with Sanskrit equivalents and Hindi translation with critical annotations by Acharya Mahaprajnaji in a highly scholarly style have also been published. The number of such texts is about 15. The critical studies of the Uttaradhayana Sutra and Dasavaikalika Sutra speak highly of the author’s erudition and have been greatly appreciated by the renowned oriental scholars.

In addition, many works have been written on the themes of Anuvrat, Preksha Dhyana, Jeevan Vigyan and other such current topics. About five hundred books written by Terapantha ascetics have been published on different subjects in different languages during the past three or four decades.

The Acharyas of Terapantha have been prolific writers. The nuns are also not lagging behind in this matter. For example, the narration of the “Foot Journeys of Acharya Shri Tulsi” by Sadhvi Pramukha Kanakprabhaji runs in several volumes.

These literary accomplishments remind us of the golden age of Jain Acharya Hemachandra.
