Jaina Pāribhāṣika Śabdakośa ► Publisher's Note

Posted: 24.05.2016

Both of our institutes are progressively marching forward in the direction of fulfilling the great dreams of His Holiness Acharya Shri Tulsi and His Holiness Acharya Shri Mahaprajna, under whose spiritual direction our institutes were established. One of these accomplishments is the publication of the "Jaina Pāribhāṣika Śabdakośa (Dictionary of Technical Terms of jainism)".

The main difficulty in the field of Indological Studies is the dearth of lexicons on technical terms, on the basis of which the scholars and students can accomplish their research work efficiently. We feel delighted, nay exalted, that this lexicon, prepared under such a Lexicographer—Acharya Shri Mahaprajna, who is an eminent Indologist and a genius saint—will become an outstanding reference book for the scholars and students, undertaking studies and research in the field of Jainology.

We dedicate our humble faith at the feet of Acharya Shri Mahaprajna for this great contribution to the world of scholarship.

We express our deep gratitude to all those Munies, Sadhvies and Samanies who have made important contribution in the fulfilment of the project of preparing this lexicon.
