Man's incessant efforts to apprehend the enigma of the final goal-Salvation (moksa)-have tempted him to explore new vistas. This is yet another attempt to explore that incomprehensible truth. In his endeavour to understand and elucidate the various theories and philosophies of liberation, Muni Shivkumar has drawn on the philosophies of four important religions of the world-Hinduism, Buddhism, Jainism, and Sikhism. His unbiased approach towards the different theories and their logical analysis makes the present work indispensable for the seekers of truth. Printed Pages: 232 View more info

This book shows that it can be very fruitful for science to study other thought-systems than those in which we were born and raised. In our days we can make use of the entire heritage of the mind-created global mosaic of cultures. Much more of such type of research should be done by able philosophers and scientists. Ancient thinkers have come up with insights that lack us today - causing unnecessary ignorance and suffering. Probably no philosopher in the world would disagree with the statement that there is no knowledge higher than Truth-but that there are many ways for the mind to approach he... View more info

Condition: New


Among the religious traditions of India, only that of Jainas includes a substantial number of women in the community of religious aspirants who renounce the household life and take the vows of mendicancy. This phenomenon might suggest that Jaina women enjoy a status of religious and spiritual equality unparalleled elsewhere on the subcontinent, but even within the Jaina tradition there exists a deep schism concerning that status. In this volume, Professor Jaini brings to light heretofore untranslated texts evidencing a centuries-old debate between the two principal Jaina sects, the Digambaras ... View more info

Brahmanic and Sramanic, these two religious traditions, fairly, epitomized the religious ethos of ancient Indian people. The former, in some form or the other, banks upon the Idea of God, and, consequently depends upon the Grace of God for achieving moksa or Absolute Freedom. Whereas, in Sramanic religious tradition. God is replaced by Man himself, and, for achieving Nirvana, one has to rely solely upon one`s own Grace. Jainism, very much like Buddhism, subscribes to the Sramanic view of man`s predicament and shows the way out of it. For Man of Today, using Nicfzsche`s phrase, God is Dead. Now... View more info

Jainism, the most fascinating and complex among the Indian religions, offers an interesting field of enquiry for the scholar of comparative religions. Originating as a heterodox sect in the sixth century BC it has added considerably to the development of Indian thought and culture while maintaining to this day its distinct identity and philosophy as a religion par excellence of love and kindness. The history of Jainism attains a greater significance, in particular, for, and its non-competitive character, it was able to stand on its own during the various stages of its history.
