Now that you have read the book, the question might arise: - How may I experience all this myself? - What can I do to unfold all these intriguing dormant states of consciousness within myself?' Well, - first of all, - regard your path to freedom from karmic limitations not as a grave obligation or as a heavy load on you, but rather as an adventure, - a venture of discovery, - a romantic quest for something new...

We have already discussed the metaphysical view of Jainism regarding the reality of the things. According to it, the ‘pudgalāstikāya’ (or matter) is the only reality which can be perceived by senses. The rest of five substances are not perceptible by senses. Even all material things cannot be perceived by senses, for the ultimate particles (atoms) and some other minute bodies are not perceptible by...

Another trend of idealism, which regards reality to be transcendental, is mainly due to the philosophers such as Plato and Kant, According to the theory of ideas, advocated by Plato, the objective reality exists, but it is not experienced by us. Whatever we perceive is only ‘appearance’. Thus, according to the metaphysical part of the doctrine, the word ‘cat’ means a certain ideal cat, ‘the cat’...

The Western world regards Yoga mainly as a system of gentle Indian exercises, aimed at balancing our body and mind. Yet the usage of the word Yoga exclusively for this kind of exercises does not do justice to its original, far broader meaning in the context of Hinduism. Yoga is one of the six classical systems of Hinduistic philosophy. Its development was completed about 1500 years ago. One element of this...

Pantheism, which considers God as the only reality, is not accepted by Jain philosophy. Though Jainism does not deny the objective existence of the supreme souls, it does not consider the universe as a mere manifestation of God. In the philosophical works of Jains, we come across long discussion on and refutation of pantheism on logical basis. Even, on the basis of common experience and general logic, we find...

Karma is easily associated with reincarnation. Not without reason; - though karmic mechanisms definitely operate in the actual present, they also are placed in the context of successive embodiments. The West often looks upon this model with disdain and without much further consideration relegates it to the domain of oriental fairy tales - usually with a mild ironic smile. But we easily forget that our precious...

Now, if we compare the views of idealism with that of Jain philosophy, we find that there are similarities as well as dissimilarities between them. Jainism is a spiritualistic philosophy. Soul (or consciousness) is considered as an independent objective reality in Jain metaphysics. Soul is a reality, possessing consciousness as its main characteristic, and therefore, knowledge is its fundamental attribute. A...

The fourth freedom is customarily interpreted as 'the restraining of sexual activity'.

Empiricism is another trend of idealism. According to it, when we think about anything or perceive it by senses, the object comes into existence. In itself, no external object has a real objective existence. Thus, in empiricism, perception is considered to be the essence of reality. In addition to these, there are several more forms of idealism prevalent in the western philosophy.

Another form of idealism, as we have seen, maintains that the universe of our experience is a subjective reality. This form of idealism does believe in the existence of the objective reality, but considers it transcendental; for it is beyond the human knowledge and sensory perception; whatever men perceives and comprehends is unreal, a mere appearance.

When “God” is considered to be the only objective reality and the rest of the world is believed to be a mere appearance, idealism takes the form of pantheism. The Indian philosophy of Vedānta , which considers “ Brahma ” as the only reality and the universe as non-reality, also can be said to belong to the idealist school.

In summary, it can be said that according to Jain philosophy, from the existence-point of view, universe is without beginning or end. In this universe, every moment there is transmutation, i.e., creation and cessation. In certain portion of the universe (time-zone), there exists time-cycle of avasarpiṇī and utsarpiṇī.
