This classic Jain manual for understanding the true nature of reality is now published for the first time in an English translation outside of India. Regarded by the Jains as the earliest, most authoritative and comprehensive summary of their religion, this book is sponsored by the Institute of Jainology.

Umasvati, to whom the Tattvartha Sutra is attributed, lived around the second cent CE and was a disciple of the highly revered Kundakunda.
