The Application of AnekĀntavĀda in Modern ThoughtMay, 2024

Introduction: A̅gamas are the source of all philosophical thought in Jainism. Incidentally, the term Aneka̅nta finds no mention in the A̅gamas.

Anek means many, anta means aspects or attributes and va̅da means doctrine. It is a doctrine of multiplicity and a philosophy of pluralism. Prof. S. N. Dasgupta calls it “relative Pluralism” against the absolutism of the Vedic tradition.

"In the garden of thoughts, where perspectives bloom, 'Anekāntavāda' whispers, dispelling gloom. Truth's kaleidoscope, in colors arrayed. In diversity's embrace, wisdom is laid. In the tapestry of life, where stories intertwine, Anekāntavāda wisdom, Oh, so divine. Each thread is a truth, each hue a view, In unity and diversity, our souls renew. In the dance of dialogues, let's sway. 'Anekāntavāda’s ' melody, every day. For in the symphony of voices, we find, The harmony of truths, in every mind. So, let's embrace diversity, with open hearts, Anekantvad's essence, a work of art. For the acceptance of multiple views, Lies the key to understanding and breaking news."
