Purnabhadra's Pancatantra: Jaina tales or brahminical outsourcing?

Taylor, McComas


"To what extent is Pūrṇabhadra’s Pañcatantra a Jaina text, that is, one of a corpus which “narrate key Jain virtues” as Cort suggests? I will test this proposition in this paper by examining the manner in which Pūrṇabhadra’s Pañcatantra dovetails into the narrative techniques of what we might call an orthodox Sanskrit brahminical tradition."
