Samayasara - by Acharya Kundakunda: Publisher's Note

There is a dearth of publications in the field of Jainism, pertaining to the classical and canonical works in English with critical annotations, specially taking into account the modern scientific concepts. In this respect, we feel exhalation in publising the great classical Jain text "SAMAYASĀRA" composed by Ācārya Kundakunda who stands foremost in the field of exposition of spirituality. In this spiritualistic treatise both the scholars and the spiritual sādhakas will find a treasure of spiritual gems, exposing profound truths of Jain adhyātma-vijñāna explained through some of the modern scientific concepts.

In the present age of crisis of values, such critically annoted classical work would play a vital role in evolving the spiritual and moral values to strengthen the social fibre which is running the risk of being torn away by the hedonistic materialism, resulting in violence, wars, economic disparity in society and so on.

We express our deepest gratitude towards His Holiness Ācārya Śrī Mahāprajñaji and His Holiness Ācārya Śrī Vidyānandaji for specially writing the "Blessings" and "Foreword" to this book. Both of these saints are the fittest persons to accomplish such writings.

The author-duo who have produced a valuable work deserve our gratitude, for an account of such publications we hope to ensure the academic world of fulfilling its thirst for knowledge of original classical texts which form the core of literary treasure of Indian heritage.

Both the authors—Late Shri J. S. Zaveri (father) and Prof. Muni Mahendra Kumar (son)—have remained associated with the establishment of our University from very beginning. We pay our humble respects to them—'worthy son' and the 'worthy father' - for their noble contribution to the field of Jain literature.
