I read this book as a part of my studies in Eastern philosophy, in particular Indian philosophy, and the only term I can come up with is "mind-blowing". I considered myself an agnostic until I read this book... This book contains within the basis of the Jain religion, as well as many philosophical points which students of Eastern (and in particular Indian) philosophy and religion cannot ignore. Truly the best and most comprehensive text on the subject of Jainism.

As a Jain, I highly recommend this book for everyone. It has the original Prakrit language of Bhagwan Mahavir as well as the English translation with an English interpretation. Remember this is Tavarttha Sutra, one of the oldest and direct scriptures of Bhagwan Mahavir, so you know exactly what our Tirthankar said.

It answers questions about this Earth, heaven, hell, lifeforms, karma, lokakasha, and has a bunch of interesting things too.

Anyone, any age can read it! It has the best English translation I have ever seen. It is worth the buy. I dont know of any other Tavarttha Sutras translations along with the real scriptural lang.

For the seeker and the knower about reality of matter, life and esoteric beyond, this translation is a great book for any student or reader of Jainism. All world faiths goal is to deliver and liberate the human spirit, Tattvartha sutra in this regard is as scientific as it is revealed by the Jaina ford founders right from Tirthankar Rishabdev bhagwan. Our respect to the life we strive to lead becomes more meaningful from a spiritual point of view. A book that must find its place in every seeker's library.
