Anekant: Views And Issues: Reconciliation

Published: 12.11.2009

The second principle of Anekānta is reconciliation. It is principle of the quest for unity between two apparently different characteristics of a substance. Characteristics which differ are not altogether different. They have identicality also. Reconciliation can be brought about only by recognizing the identity principle. The principle of ecology is one of reconciliation and of interrelationship between different substances. Balance in the universe cannot be established on the basis of the premise, "I alone exist". We survive only by adhering to the principle that "besides me, the other also exists and we are interrelated". The balance in the universe can be explained on the basis of the above concept of interrelatedness.
