charya Shri Tulsi is a prolific writer. He has more than 100 books to his credit. Jaina Siddhanta Dipika, Bhiksu-Nyaya Karnika, and Mano'nusasanamare his epoch-making works in Sanskrit elucidating Jain Philosophy, Jain Logic and Jain System of Yoga, respectively.

His greatest contribution to literature is his Agama-vacana i.e. critical editions of the Jain canonical texts with elaborate commentaries, Sanskrit and Hindi renderings, and their annotations in the modern context. They are published by the Jain Vishva Bharati.

The present work, Bhagwana Mahavira, is not merely a biography but an essay on Truth, because Bhagavan Mahavira was the embodiment of Truth rather than a historical hero. It was he who propounded anekantavada, which is capable of synthesizing the diverse currents of thought in the world. We will not be able to appreciate him correctly as a great prophet of ahimsa and anekantavada until we tried to practise the two ideals in our own lives.
