The Relevance Of The Jaina Religion To Modern Problems


hagavan Mahavira did not ever acquiesce in the usur­pation of the freedom of man. Usurpation of freedom amounts to violence. Violence in its turn creates problems and misery.
Mahavira propounded the principle of self-discipline in order to free mankind from this misery.

He said,

"One should discipline oneself. Self-discipline is undoubtedly most difficult. One who has disciplined his own self will certainly he happy here and hereafter.

It is better if one controls oneself through self-restraint and penance. It is not good for one to be governed by others under the threat of imprisonment and death."

Mahavira never conceived non-violence as separate from freedom and freedom from self-restraint and penance.
