In current times, most Jains believe if I follow all the restrictions related to food, do fasting, go to the temple/Upashraya and do the poojas/samayik – I’m following Jainism. But are we following Jainism in the true sense? NOT till we realize and start following similar restrictions in all areas of lifestyle.
We love the smell of fresh laundry, but………………… Do you know that cleaning has a direct impact on marine living beings and environment? Bhagavan Mahavir, the 24th Tirthankara of Jainism included Ahimsa as a fundamental principle. All life is sacred, and every living being has a right to live fearlessly.
