Shrenik: Jain Tales (Amar Chitra Katha)

Anant Pai



The two Jain tales in this Amar Chitra Katha deal with Shrank and inedita whose stories teach the importance of being astute and insightful without necessarily indulging in shrewdness or deceit. Jain monks took a keen interest in the spiritual emancipation of the common people. To make their terse philosophy intelligible and interesting to any ordinary individual, they used the medium of stories. Thousands of such didactic stories in Sanskrit and Prakrit have come down to us. ‘Shenika is retold from Hiroshima’s Bichat Katha Kosha (10 th century A.D.) and the Hidden Truth from Rajasekhara’s Vinod Katha Sangria (14 th century A.D.)
