The Colours of Desire on the Canvas of Restraint is an attempt to unshroud a religion. It lays bare complicated concepts and hopes to lead to a better understanding of Jain mythology. It begins with an account of the first twenty-three tirthankaras and explains Jain philosophy using the original religious texts, sensuous poetry, voluptuous sculptures and tales that were both explicit and explorative. At the heart of the book is an exploration of how Jainism has influenced much of Indian culture, thought and aesthetics, and a desire to dispel the notion that it is a 'dry' religion by making it more accessible to the general reader.
