7. Bhuvalaya Grantha

The Bhuvalaya yantra is the key symbol of Bhuvalaya Grantha, a scripture containing the totality of literature that is possible on earth as per Jain belief. As the name reflects, the Bhuvalaya yantra, a symbolic expression in the form of a coil is made out of the alphabetical beads where each alphabet can be the opening point of the coil narrating a scripture of Dwadashang shrut. Indus scholars have called it a sketch of a womb and it is seen twice rock-inscribed on Vindhyagiri of the Sravana Belagola hill of Karnataka. Such rock inscribed sketches are also seen on rocks in the border regions of Pakistan and Iran.
