Sanskrit (or Prakrit) Jaina Texts

Here are a few Sanskrit (or Prakrit) Jaina texts, some with English translation. They include the fundamental Tattvārthādhigama-sūtra, by Umāsvāti according to the Śvetāmbara Jaina tradition, or by Umāsvāmi according to the Digambara Jaina tradition. Importantly, this text is accepted by both traditions. Also posted here are the major works on yoga, as understood in Jainism, by Haribhadra-sūri.
