Yogasara - Prabhrta (Gift of the   Essence of Yoga):
Yogasara - Prabhrta (Gift of the Essence of Yoga):
Description

From the jacket

Religion (dharma) basically aims at granting excellent ecstasy and bliss to the jivas. The way leading to this high and noble aim of life is constituted by Right Faith, Right Knowledge and Right Conduct, which imply an attitude of mind, a comprehension of the necessary principles and an observance of a course of discipline repectively. This represents, in a nutshell, the essence of the Science of Jain Yoga, a gift of which is given by Acharya Amitagati to the soulseeking novices through his highly esteemedd Yogasara-prabhrta. The Acharya follows the traditional plan of dealing with the seven principles (Sapta tattva) of Jaina Philosophy but with a special emphasis on the redemption and uplift of the jivas from the labyrinths of samsara to the perfection and purity of moksa.

The English rendering and annotation of this valuable work by Dr. S.C. Jain certainly enhances the import of the theme of the original Sanskrit work.

Introduction

the self-born Rsabha, appeared on earth for the welfare of the living beings , possessing the knowledge, righteousness, and was majestic. He possessed the eyes through which he could remove the darkness like the moon rays. Prajapati, at the start of the earth, getting desirous of the survival, initiated into it farming and several other vocations among the people. Realising the truth of the substances and objects, he again infused astonisting splendour in its. He was not involved in worldly attachments, was quite detached, the wisest and the noblest of all. Lord Rsabha, who had full control of all the senses, and was fully competent and independent, tolerant to all impediments, infallible in the Iksavaku dynasty, desirous of attaining Moksa, renounced his vast kindom, extending upto the ocean and his family and himself turned into a recluse and achieved sainthood.

The Jaina doctrines may be broadly divided into two schools viz. philosophical and practical. These schools of philosophy contain ontology, metaphysics and psychology. The practical doctrines are covered under ethics and ascetism, monasticism and the life of laity.

Testimonials
I received the statue today, and it is beautiful! Worth the wait! Thank you so much, blessings, Kimberly.
Kimberly, USA
I received the Green Tara Thangka described below right on schedule. Thank you a million times for that. My teacher loved it and was extremely moved by it. Although I have seen a lot of Green Tara thangkas, and have looked at other Green Tara Thangkas you offer and found them all to be wonderful, the one I purchased is by far the most beautiful I have ever seen -- or at least it is the one that most speaks to me.
John, USA
Your website store is a really great place to find the most wonderful books and artifacts from beautiful India. I have been traveling to India over the last 4 years and spend 3 months there each time staying with two Bengali families that I have adopted and they have taken me in with love and generosity. I love India. Thanks for doing the business that you do. I am an artist and, well, I got through I think the first 6 pages of the book store on your site and ordered almost 500 dollars in books... I'm in trouble so I don't go there too often.. haha.. Hari Om and Hare Krishna and Jai.. Thanks a lot for doing what you do.. Great !
Steven, USA
