An Outline of the Religious Literature of India

By J. N. Farquhar | Go to book overview

ancient books, after the separation, so as to bring them into full consonance with their own standards. Yet among the books which the Digambaras possess, and which have a place in their Secondary Canon,1 there are at least two which bear the names of books of the Śvetāmbara Canon, viz. the Sūryaprajñapti, and the Chandraprajñapti. The whole problem of the relation of the Digambaras to the early literature needs to be cleared up.

§ 188. But there are two Digambara writers who seem to belong to our period and whose works are well known to-day. One is Vaṭṭakera, author of the Mūlāchāra, a work on conduct. It corresponds to the Āclīārāṅga-sūtra of the Śvetāmbara Canon, and is said to be an adaptation and summary of that work. Another book on conduct, the Trivarṇāchāra, is also attributed to him. The other writer is one of the greatest names in early Digambara history, Kuṇḍakuṇdāchārya. Ten fundamental works of great importance, which have been much expounded and studied, were written by him. They are in Prākṛit verse, and deal with the whole Digambara system. It seems to be impossible as yet to fix the dates of these men.
