14. Prince Vardhamana’s Courage Tested By A God The world is full of contradictions. While there are people who sing praises and appreciate the valour of a person, there are others who are jealous of him. Bhagavan Mahavira was also subjected to this experience.

Rites generate fruits. The nature of the fruits produced by Jain rites of worship, however, is an ambiguous matter. As we shall learn, many Jains, especially ascetics, stress the soteriological benefits of rites; from this perspective they are seen as mere aids along the way to the sole legitimate goal, which is liberation from worldly bondage. But rites of worship also bear worldly fruits. Thus, there is...

It starts by cultivating a genuine respect for oneself; one's consciousness or life force, and for each of its supportive elements- the body, mind and emotions. We come to realize that our life-force is precious and that we are here to respect and reveal its innate wisdom. It is a...

In the present era of restructuring, every thing is looked at from two dimensions -sensual and trans-sensual. Man is also subject to this restructuring.

The cosmos as visualized by the Jains is one to which radical asceticism is the only rational and moral response. Whether radical world rejection is an emotional or practical possibility for most people is another matter. In their persons, ascetics exemplify the path to liberation; in their interactions with nonascetics they draw others—less advanced than they—along in the right direction. Given these roles,...

Ahimsa is necessary for all - an individual, family, society and nation.

Living ascetics are objects of worship to lay Svetambar Jains. Lay Jains greet ascetics formally with a rite of obeisance known as guru vandan ; it consists of bowing in coordination with the recitation of a prescribed formula (see Cort 1989: 328). This is a form of worship. Ascetics are also overtly worshiped in a small rite known as guru puja . In the Tapa Gacch this is based on a transaction involving a...

The transaction in which ascetics are fed is probably the most important lay-ascetic interaction. Eating itself is highly problematical to Jains.
