13th Annual Jaina Lecture:

Date: 21 March 2013 Time: 6:00 PM
Finished: 21 March 2013 Time: 8:00 PM
Venue: Brunei Gallery Room: Brunei Gallery Lecture Theatre


Despite its importance for the history and development of Indian religions and philosophical thought, the beginnings of Jainism, not to mention the movement of the Ājīvikas once apparently closely allied to the Jainas, still remain shrouded in mystery.

The lecture will provide a fresh attempt to better understand the reasons how, why and when Jainism developed its strikingly unique logic and epistemology and what historical and doctrinal factors could have prompted the ideas which later led to the formulation of the doctrine of multiplexity of reality (anekānta-vāda). It seems that some additional insight may be gained by taking a closer look at the early relation between the founders of Jainism and the movement of the Ājīvikas.
