Universal Message Of Lord Mahavira
The study of religious texts and canonical literatures paves the way for man's spiritual advancement. The history of our civilization is but a record of man's spiritual progress and religion is the vehicle which takes man from his baser instincts to higher instincts.
in this sharply polarized and volatile world, torn apart by violence and hatred, the study of Jaina canonical texts are more relevant as the underlying principle in them is non-violence, Ahimsa. They preach the eternalness of the soul and the universe and talks of transcending the karmic cycle.
In the 6th century B.C., Lord Mahaivira, the 24th Tirthankara of the Jaina tradition, revealed these truths to the world. Later, his revealations were recorded by scholars and the vast storehouse of Jaina Agamic literature was created.
This book will present before the reader a kaleidoscope of the Jaina tradition and philosophy. It will give a panoramic picture of the cardinal principles and values enshrined in Jainism. The book, though primarily designed keeping in mind the general public, is also intended to cater to the pursuits of the scholarly mind.
