Introduction No single religion has a monopoly on spiritual wisdom. Many paths can lead to eternal life. There is a deep harmony between spirituality and science. God is not an old man in the sky passing out judgment, but a force of love that resides in all beings and that pervades the entire cosmos. One can experience this force directly through the process of meditation. To have this experience one does not...

‘One who is born, will die. I do not know how long will I live. But am definite that I will die!’ When one reaches the edge of one’s life expectancy (because of age or illness,) one cannot or should not be restrained from ‘observing’ how ‘life departs naturally.’ Why? Because while observing santhara/sallekhna, I am not ‘causing death of self’ as in suicide or sati, nor am I ‘accelerating...

It is invitation to create our lives in creative tension or even mutual benefit with the abundant lives around us. Jain nonviolence is indeed rooted in wider and more subtle modes of perceiving our planetary multiplicity than most perspectives allow, whether religious or secular. This creative multiplicity is never reduced to an abstract One, and consequently Jains epistemology is necessarily formalized around...

In the recently published Norton Anthology of World Religions , there were two notable omissions: the ancient nonviolent Indian tradition of Jainism, and the modern Indian tradition of Sikhism.

The term ' karma ' is so loosely used nowadays that it has become the simplest explanation for anybody's problems. Anything...

I have lived most of my life proudly claiming that I am a Jain, without realising who Jains really are. I definitely got the basics right, worshiped Lord Mahavira and our Acharyas with devotion, but beyond that, it was just a religious sect that I belonged to by birth. It is only recently that I have begun to accept it as a way of life, as a means of sustenance. Only recently has it begun to influence my...
