Padmanabh Jaini writes in the first paragraph of "The Path of Purification" (1979): He belonged to the lineage of Sena Gana, made famous by Acharya Jinasena and his pupils in the Rashtrakuta period. His initiator Devendrakirti belonged to this lineage. The Sena Gana itself was a branch of the Pancha-stupa lineage.
