Puṣpamālāprakaraṇa (पुष्पमालाप्रकरण) is the name of a work by Hemacandra Maladhārin dealing with the Ethics section of Jain Canonical literature.—The Sanskrit commentary on the Puṣpamālāprakaraṇa is included in the collection of manuscripts at the ‘Vincenzo Joppi’ library, collected by Luigi Pio Tessitori during his visit to Rajasthan between 1914 and 1919.—The available text portion (of the commentary on the Puṣpamālāprakaraṇa) deals with religious gift (dāna), virtue (śīla), asceticism (tapas) and then with the nature of right faith (samyaktva, vss. 98-106), describing the successive processes leading to its acquisition (yathāpravṛttikaraṇa, apūrvakaraṇa, nivṛttikaraṇa; see, for instance, H. von Glasenapp, The doctrine of Karman pp. 70-72). the topic is dealt with differently in Sādhusomagaṇi’s commentary. Here the line followed is that of the Viśeṣāvaśyakabhāṣya (1217-1220) for the analogy with the purification of kodrava grains.

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.
