Sanskrit Manuscripts

<p style='text-align: justify;'>This manuscript contains the last eight chapters of the <i>Yogaśāstra</i>, composed by the 12th century Jain monk and teacher Hemacandra. This comprehensive treatise on Śvetāmbara Jainism consists of 12 chapters which were usually handed down in two parts, namely chapters 1-4 and 5-12. Jaina manuscript collections include mostly more manuscripts which contain the first four chapters since they deal with important topics of the Jaina doctrine. The last eight chapters mainly concern themes of breath control, meditation and divination. </p>
