Quantity:

It is a unique reference book about a religion with an unbroken history of more than 2,500 years, and one which has influenced India's culture throughout this period. At the core of Jainism's teachings is non-violence, which Mahatma Gandhi brought to world consciousness by adopting it as the guiding principle in the campaign he led for India's freedom. In Jainism, non-violence extends equally to man's relationship with all natural life, a sensitivity being articulated anew in contemporary times by a concern for the environment and animal rights, etc.

This book covers all important touchstones of Jainism in more than 450 crisp alphabetical entries. A detailed introduction provides a holistic overview of Jainism; and a chronology highlights important Jain milestones. An extensive, subject-wise bibliography guides interested readers to in-depth resources on various topics.

Table of Contents:

  • Editor's Foreword/Jon Woronoff
  • Preface
  • Reader's Notes
  • The Jain Scriptures
  • Map of Major Jain Sites in India
  • Chronology
  • Introduction
  • The Dictionary.

TESTIMONIALS

In 1979, the year I met Ananda Mayi Ma, KD Sethna was kind enough to spend an afternoon in his house talking to a friend and me. While it was a joyful time with him, I did not realize then what a treasure he was. Vedanta as Universal Truth has become more and more meaningful over the years. There are many here interested in these teachings. Thanks to technology there is much greater access now. I'm happy to know about your work!...
