In the Jain monastery at Shravana Belgola, the largest in South India, the abbot showed me his rare, treasured, ancient palm-leaf manuscripts where numerous symbols were beautifully drawn and their meanings or effects explained. In Bombay, the most learned of all Jain pundits gave me lengthy instruction in the Jain secrets which he had gathered by travelling throughout India for many years, going from monastery to monastery and copying or collecting rare, little-known volumes which are still in the unprinted unpublished state.
