Description

Preface

 

This book of stories has been born out of the need to familiarize people especially children and the youth with Jainism. Jainism has always been considered to be a very strict and austere religion. The discipline that it requires from its followers is harsh and the life that devout Jains live is simple and austere. This is one reason why Jainism has never become widely popular.

 

Why then, one may ask, have I chosen to write about Jainism. The answer is simple. I have tried to write about the teachings and concepts of Jainism because I feel these have become extremely relevant today. Our fear-ridden world where terrorism and bloodshed has become an everyday and accepted occurrence needs the calmness that nonviolence and adherence to ahimsa can bring. And we need to start with the parents of young children and teenagers, to inculcate these doctrines so that they bring about a change in their inner self and in the outside world.

 

In our modern fast-paced world, it is not easy to explain these religious concepts to the young especially the segment which lives in big cities and towns and attend public schools and English medium schools. Their main language is English and it is difficult to find suitable books or literature which can explain these concepts.

 

The teachings of Jainism are extremely simple and easy to follow but what is needed is an awareness about them. With a little effort the teachings can be incorporated and interwoven in the fabric of our daily life to make our life richer and fuller.

 

Through this book I have endeavoured to explain some basic concepts of Jainism along with commonly used Jain terms. As a parent I too often found it difficult to explain these basic concepts in everyday language to children. I searched through our Hindi shastras and read them in order to explain the basic concepts and the logic and reasoning behind them.

 

The book tries to answer questions such as:

 

“What are the basic principles of Jainism?”

 

“What is the correct method of praying in a temple and the logic behind it?”

 

“What are the common vows that Jains undertake and the reasons behind them?”

 

These concepts are illustrated through stories that leave a lasting impression upon children. The stories are old and have been compiled from various books and other sources. It is a book that will be enjoyed by children as well as grownups.

Ramakrishna, Australia
I really LOVE you! Wonderful selections, prices and service. Thank you!
Tina, USA
This is to inform you that the shipment of my order has arrived in perfect condition. The actual shipment took only less than two weeks, which is quite good seen the circumstances. I waited with my response until now since the Buddha statue was a present that I handed over just recently. The Medicine Buddha was meant for a lady who is active in the healing business and the statue was just the right thing for her. I downloaded the respective mantras and chants so that she can work with the benefits of the spiritual meanings of the statue and the mantras. She is really delighted and immediately fell in love with the beautiful statue. I am most grateful to you for having provided this wonderful work of art. We both have a strong relationship with Buddhism and know to appreciate the valuable spiritual power of this way of thinking. So thank you very much again and I am sure that I will come back again.
