The most important feature of Anekant is that in spite of having such a good command over Jaina agamas and Philosophy , he has not kept himself confined to this field only, he is equally good in Hindi, Sanskrit ,Prakrit and English Languages and not only languages but also in the field of Poetry.

He is well-versed in Information Technology and is keen to utilize it in Prakrit/Sanskrit teaching and research. These out-of-the-box features of Anekant differentiate him from those who are confined to conventional knowledge of Prakrit and Jainism.

An experiment with Anekāntavāda May, 2024 Anekant Kumar Jain

The 24th Tirthankara of Jainism, Bhagwan Mahavira was a divine personality who left a lasting impact in the form of his teachings for the spiritual advancement of the individual, protection and preservation of all forms of life, peaceful and secular social order. His teachings are as relevant and useful today as they were 2600 years ago. He put forward the doctrine of Anekāntavāda, where he always advised his disciples to discover the truth after taking into account all aspects and giving them due weight. This broadens one's outlook and trains the mind to accommodate the feelings and the way of life of other faiths and communities.
