* Originally printed in Heritage of Buddhism, 1989. There was a time, when Mahatma Gandhi's nonviolent struggle for independence had not yielded desired result, some top-rank politicians and historians of India used to level the charge of India's political downfall and slavery upon the influence of Ahimsa taught by Mahavira and Buddha. In that period of peril and moral damnation Mahatma Gandhi was glorifying...

As does the text of Parsvanath's five- kalyanak puja , the text of Devcandraji's snatra puja tells a story. The story, which we encountered briefly in the last chapter, is the tale of how the Tirthankar comes into the world and how he is given his first bath ( janamabhisek ) by the gods on the summit of Mount Meru. The bath, as Laidlaw points out (1995: 44), superimposes two images: it is a baby's bath but also...

As is the case with Parsvanath's five- kalyanak puja , the performance of the snatra puja centers on the singing of a text.

The two words - "violence" and "possessiveness" seemingly connote two different meanings, but their ultimate significance revolves round the same axis. For, "possessiveness" plays a vital role in giving birth to "violence". Similarly, "non-violence" and "non-possessiveness" may appear to have different verbal meanings, but essentially both are concomitant, the non-possessiveness being the cause and the...

Rites generate fruits. The nature of the fruits produced by Jain rites of worship, however, is an ambiguous matter. As we shall learn, many Jains, especially ascetics, stress the soteriological benefits of rites; from this perspective they are seen as mere aids along the way to the sole legitimate goal, which is liberation from worldly bondage. But rites of worship also bear worldly fruits. Thus, there is...

The philosophy of Non-violence is a living practice. More than refraining from violence, it is a deep Reverence for All Life. It starts by cultivating a genuine respect for oneself; one's consciousness or life force, and for each of its supportive elements- the body, mind and emotions. We come to realize that our life-force is precious and that we are here to respect and reveal its innate wisdom. It is a...

The cosmos as visualized by the Jains is one to which radical asceticism is the only rational and moral response. Whether radical world rejection is an emotional or practical possibility for most people is another matter. In their persons, ascetics exemplify the path to liberation; in their interactions with nonascetics they draw others—less advanced than they—along in the right direction. Given these roles,...

This is a form of worship. Ascetics are also overtly worshiped in a small rite known as guru puja . In the Tapa Gacch this is based on a transaction involving a...
