Sūtrasiddhānta (सूत्रसिद्धान्त) refers to “religious scriptures”, according to the “Vinīta-avinīta nī ḍhāla” (dealing with the Ethics section of Jain Canonical literature), which 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 topic discussed is good education and humility towards one’s own parents and teacher, thus vinaya and its opposite in their general understanding, combined with its meaning in the Jain doctrinal context as the author repeatedly states that he draws on religious scriptures (sūtrasiddhānta).

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.
