Mulachara is a Jain text composed by Acharya Vattakera of the Digambara tradition, who lived around 1st-2nd century CE.[1] It incorporates the concepts derived from the Acharanga text, which is now regarded to be lost in the Digambara tradition.

Mulachara discusses the conduct of a Jain monk.[2]


There is a commentary on it by the 14th century Bhattaraka Sakalakirti.[3]


A translation is available in Hindi.[4]
