A Study of Tattvārtha-sūtra with Bhāṣya
Volume 86 of the L. D. Series is an attempt to assess the date of the Tattvārtha-sūtra using its treatment of some doctrinal themes and references to external data. It seems reasonable to locate it in the 5th century CE. The differences between Digambara and Śvetāmbara versions of the text are also discussed, as well as the status of the Bhāṣya and the question of knowing whether it has the same author as the sūtra itself.

Each verse is first given in Hindi, followed by the English translation and comprehensive notes in English containing several original quotations with translations from other Digambara texts.
The foreword, by Ācārya Vidyanand Maharaj, a prominent Digambara figure, is in Hindi. All other material, including a general index of terms, is in English.
