Information


Jainism is an ancient religion based in India based on dharma, or eternal teaching from the 24 tirthankaras from each cycle of time. The three main pillars are ahimsa, anekantavada, and aparigraha. Jain monks and nuns take vows of ahimsa (non-harming), satya (truthfulness), asteya (non-stealing), brahmacharya (self-control), and aparigraha (non-attachment). Jains are often vegetarian, and monks and nuns are often seen wearing masks, so not to even injure a fly by accidentally inhaling it.
