Acaranga Sutra  (1884) , translated by Hermann Jacobi
Acaranga Sutra is the first and the oldest Agama or the canonical text of the Jains. The agamas were probably composed from 6th century BCE onwards. Jacobi reckons the date of composition of Acaranga Sutra to be falling somewhere about the end of the fourth or the beginning of the third century B.C.E. — Excerpted from Acaranga Sutra on Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
