Mahavira's Scripture Of Health: [00.00] About The Book

The question of health is related to life. It is not the question that concerns any particular community or sect. For Lord Mahavira, the soul was of the highest importance while the body was of secondary importance. The body which created obstacle in the upliftment of the soul is worthless. The chetana or consciousness which rounds the ahimsa from the beginning till the end can attribute value to that health which has innate memory of the soul in its every pore.

Bhagvan Mahavira did not promulgate any theory of health. In his teachings, the body has been viewed only as a factor that is helpful and useful for the soul, hence the theory of physical health never formed a part of his teachings. The soul was the supreme element for him. He talked a great deal to keep the soul healthy and it became a spiritual scripture. Spiritual scripture's another name is Scripture of Health. One would be able to find this fact clearly in the book Mahavira's Scripture of Health.
