As I turn a new page, I salute depth of your comprehension and wording the same for your audience. I am so impressed (and would say immersed) with your style and humility, that I am writing this brief message to convey my hearty thanks.

I had a chance to take a glance at your books on Tatvarthsutra Sutra. They are just amazing and full of information. I feel you have put in lots and lots of effort in preparing and publishing them. It should serve as a very valuable source of information not only to laymen but also to sadhus and sadhvis for generations to come.

My hats off to you for producing such a wonderful set on the core teachings of Lord MAHAVIR.

Since January 2018, in the monthly St. Louis Jain Center Adult Pathshala classes, I am conducting Swadhyay on “The Tattvarth Sutra” using “Shri Tattvarthathigam Sutra” book by Shri Chandrakant Mehta. In the book, Chandrakantbhai has presented the intricate subject material in a very orderly manner; starting with each sutra in its original form in Sanskrit, then in Gujarati, followed by meaning of each word, meaning of sutra, and then detailed discussion. In many places, the detailed discussion contains explanation in the form of questions and answers and with charts and diagrams. I have found this form of presentation easy to follow and helpful to understand the essence of the sutra for me and for the Swadhyay participants. Further, the Review Questions and Exam Questions at the end of each chapter and/or chapters are very useful in reviewing the material at home and then again re-reviewing it in the class while discussing the answers. Sometimes, we use material from other books in the Swadhyay to supplement our discussions, but our main resource is this book. I believe that this book would be a very good resource for those who want to learn the basic concepts of Jainism.
