▪ *About:* Jainism is one of the oldest religions in the world and due to its principles, it can become the leading religion in today's world. Solutions to the problems of the world are rooted in Jainism, such as Ahimsa, Aparigraha, Anekantavada, the principles of Lord Mahavira on the environment. Jainism’s Past has been very glorious and shiny but the 21st Century environment is shaking beliefs, practices and foundations of many religions including Jainism at a very alarming speed which will definitely affect its future.
