The Pustimarg is considered a Hindu sect. Have we, then, discovered an essential difference between Jainism and Hinduism? Not quite, for it turns out that Jain ritual culture has close parallels in what is generally regarded as the "Hindu" world. An example is Saiva Siddhanta. Let me stress that a comparison of Jain and Saiva ritual culture is not suggested—as is our Jain-Vaisnava comparison—by close...

0. Jain Epistemology II Sense-organs (Indriya) In the preceding chapter, we had seen that perceptive cognition (mati-jnana), which is one of the five types of knowledge, is born with the help of sense-organs. In other words, sense-organs are essential instruments of perception. One way of classification of living organisms, according to Jain philosophy, is based on the number of sense-organs possessed by the...

A Svetambar Jain friend from Jaipur once suggested to me that, to understand why prasad is not distributed to the Tirthankar's worshipers, one must see things from the Vaisnava point of view. Vaisnavas are those who worship the major Hindu deity Visnu and his manifestations. To the Vaisnavas, my friend went on to say, God is a creator and a giver; he is wealthy. The Tirthankar is obviously not wealthy, he...

A ritual culture supports and is supported by the roles assumed by those who are the actors in ritual performances.

These same dilemmas and ambiguities are directly reflected in ritual culture.
