Jiv daya is the act of caring for life. For many, the expression conjures up images of cows being lovingly cared for at a cow sanctuary. For others, it brings memories of putting out grain for birds to feed on, or the image of ornate collection boxes at temples through which funds are passed on to animal sanctuaries in India. In this article, I outline why jiv daya in the form of support to animal shelters...

Now younger Jains who resist the elaborate rituals of their parents, which include meditating 48 minutes a day and...

For years, we’ve been told that milk does a body good. But does it really? Though touted as the healthier option at home and in restaurants, milk has roughly the same calorie count as soda and 2% milk contains the same amount of saturated fat as french fries. Given these two facts, the correlation between high milk consumption and high rates of Type 1 diabetes and heart disease makes sense. Even though...

For many Jains, vegetarianism is the defining characteristic of our culture and identity. From early childhood, we are taught to respect all life forms, and discouraged from harming animals, insects and minimizing harm to plant life. Vegetarianism – the refusal to kill animals for food -- was the ultimate expression of Jainism's ahinsic (non-violent) approach to life. Some Jain historians speculate that...
