  • Ambika: In Jaina Art And Literature endeavours to give a detailed and critical assessment of the origin and development of Jaini Yaksi Ambika. Acknowledged as the Yaksi of the 22nd Jina Arista nemi or Neminatha, Ambika enjoys an exalted position in jaina worship. the popular worship of Mother representing fertility cult was adopted by the Jainas in the form of an early Yaksi Bahu Putrika. By the close of the sixth century A.D., she got transformed into Yaksi Ambika. The study potrays the evolution of the forms of Ambika in the Jaina Literature and iconographic texts with their visual¬† manifestation in sculpture and painting.
