The Vent Haven Portraits

Cosmology is one of the subjects that are dealt with already in the old Jaina treatises composed in Middle Indian languages. Transmitted by means of the later summaries of the Doctrine and explained by detailed commentaries, they are the basis of the minutely elaborated manuals of the Middle Ages, such as the Langhu-ksetra-samara, 'the elementary summary of geography', and several other samgraharis, or 'collections' of 'geographical', 'astronomical' teachings. Even in the present days, they are reprinted and accompanied by translations into the modern vernaculars.
