>Jains. Instructions for this ritual, I am told, are laid down
>in the *abhishekam path* of Abhiyanandi and Meghanandi (?), but
>I have not been able to locate the exact citations.

I wonder if any of the Indology readers can help me locate passages from 
the above authors and any of the following citations:

1. Divyan nhahyan... Kundkunda, __Chaityabhakti__

   Deva Jinabhisayam mahavibhudiykunvati||

The above quotations have been gathered from a Hindi source, which
does not provide any bibliographical details. 

I would appreciate any help in this matter.
