Atonements in the Ancient Ritual of the Jaina Monks

Volume 49 in the L. D. Series investigates the structuring of the monastic community, based on the canonical texts known as Cheda-sūtras, and the methods for mendicants’ compensating and repairing lapses in conduct. The teacher decides on the necessary atonements – prāyaścittas – by taking into account the culprit’s situation and other factors.
