The contribution of the Jaina sources to the making of the history of our great nation, during the epoch-making millennium of 100 BC to AD 900, is of vital importance. But it has only lacked proper research and application. This book presents a brief survey of the more important sources, particularly literary ones, and a discussion of certain fundamental problems such as the dates of Mahavira and of the beginning of the Earlier Saka, Vikrama, and Saka eras, as well as the dates of important Jaina authors and their works and thus clears much of the fog that masks Indian chronology, both political and cultural. Printed Pages: 239.
