What does the snatra puja teach us? The story it tells, in word and deed, is obviously the key. It is, first and foremost, a celebration of the birth and first bath of the Tirthankar, and it tells us something about this event. But it can also be seen as a statement about the nature of ritual itself. It tells us, that is, something about what it means to worship a Tirthankar, and this is what I want to stress...

*Originally printed in Prabuddha Bharat, Vol. 91, 1986 Ahimsa or non-violence is a concept or an ideological tool today. In ancient India, especially in the Vedic age, it was not a mere concept but a natural feature of human behavior which required a person to abstain from all acts injurious to any form of life. To many of us it may be astonishing to hear that the concept of Ahimsa is as old as our civilization...
