Studies in Jainism
Description
Publisher Note

Jainism is the earliest post Vedic non Brahmin cal religious faith which appeared in northern India in the first millennium B.C. It’s earliest exponent was Rsabha the first Tirthankara. It was. However. Finally by vardhamana or Mohair the 24th Tirthankara. An elder contemporary of Gautama Buddha. Born in 599 B.C Mahavira is admittedly the founder of modern Jainisum.

A creator God behind the vast universe around us has no place in Jaina theology. Nor does it accept that a religious faith can be impersonal apauruseya ‘ as accepted by the prevailing Vedic religion. The difference of Jainism with the Vedic religion is apparently sharp on many issues. A close study of the two Systems. However ,reveals that they have much in common as well .and it would be a better appreciation of both to say that Jainism was a Contemporary reformist religious movement such reform are a testimony to India’s spiritual vitality eclecticism and assimilation. The few articles printed in this small volume present the different aspests of Jainism.

We thank all those who have helped us in producing this book. We also thank Govind charity trust for helping as finance us finance the publication.

Testimonials
I received the Green Tara Thangka described below right on schedule. Thank you a million times for that. My teacher loved it and was extremely moved by it. Although I have seen a lot of Green Tara thangkas, and have looked at other Green Tara Thangkas you offer and found them all to be wonderful, the one I purchased is by far the most beautiful I have ever seen -- or at least it is the one that most speaks to me.
John, USA
Your website store is a really great place to find the most wonderful books and artifacts from beautiful India. I have been traveling to India over the last 4 years and spend 3 months there each time staying with two Bengali families that I have adopted and they have taken me in with love and generosity. I love India. Thanks for doing the business that you do. I am an artist and, well, I got through I think the first 6 pages of the book store on your site and ordered almost 500 dollars in books... I'm in trouble so I don't go there too often.. haha.. Hari Om and Hare Krishna and Jai.. Thanks a lot for doing what you do.. Great !
