The Jains, a small religious group believing in an immortal soul, are indigenous to India, and affirm many of the ideas of their Hindu counterparts, but are critical of other Hindu doctrines. Jains do not have a traditional place for "God" or "Gods", but do for the omniscient Fordmakers. Dundas work in portraying the Jains will have lasting value.

The Jains (Library of Religious Beliefs and Practices). 0415266068 (ISBN13: 9780415266062). This book was super informative, and really detailed about the practices and history of Jainism, as well as giving outlooks into how Jains have interacted with different religions in India and in the West. However, it was also really dense and dry. It's definitely meant to be a textbook, and the reader would certainly benefit from a teacher. However, that's not to say the reader can't learn a lot about the Jains from this book.

The author does a very thorough job introducing the reader to Jainism, its history, its sacred days, its customs and its sects. Indian language vocabulary is also well-explained (mostly Sanskrit). The one thing grossly lacking in this book is citation of scripture. As I recall, there may be a sentence or two of Jain scripture in the entire book. It has long been my belief that the best way to learn about the beliefs of any religion is through its own source text(s). The author does state that there is no definitive canon of Jain scripture, but the book could have been made about 25% larger through some reasonable scriptural selection, or, alternatively, 25% of the existing content could have been cut to provide the reader some feel for Jain scripture. This is the only negative critcism that I have to offer. Aside from this one criticism, this is an excellent book and I recommend it highly.

I thought I knew so much about Jainism until I read this book, I learned so much more about the culture and beliefs of the Jains and Jainism.

Paul Dundas has produced some serious and valuable scholarship on Jainism. Academics wishing a deeper appreciation and understanding of Jainism than most introductions can give will like Dundas' work. Beginners will find it hard to digest. Dundas has successfully and critically presented a broad account of Jain beliefs and history. The strength of the book -- its thoroughness and density --also may be a deterrent to the new reader.

I had passed on this book for a long time because I wanted to learn about the religion itself, not the history of it. I finally did get it, though, and it is superb. It is indeed a history book, but it a good supplement to the other reading I've done, and Professor Dundas is a wonderful writer. I wish he'd written more on this topic that he obviously is an expert on; I will get every book of his I can find.

I had to look up a few words, but it was not a horribly difficult read.

An Excellent Book.

This book gets really detailed, and it's hard to keep track of some of the histories and nuances in philosophy. Nonetheless, my mother was amazed at how completely the author covered Jainism, and I'm learning alot myself (we're both Jain).
