Jambūdvīpanovicāra (जम्बूद्वीपनोविचार) is a text in Gujarati prose belonging to the tradition of Jain cosmological writings. It gives a description of the Jambūdvīpa and of all its different parts with numbers and sizes. Jumboo Dvipa Punotii on 1r would point to the Jambūdvīpaprajñapti, the main Śvetāmbara canonical source on Jain cosmology, but this is not the text written here.

General definition book cover
context information

Jainism is an Indian religion of Dharma whose doctrine revolves around harmlessness (ahimsa) towards every living being. The two major branches (Digambara and Svetambara) of Jainism stimulate self-control (or, shramana, ‘self-reliance’) and spiritual development through a path of peace for the soul to progess to the ultimate goal.
