1 Jainism: History, Society, Philosophy and Practice

Agustin Paniker; Translated from the Revised Spanish Edition By David Sutcliffe

Motilal Banarsidass Publishers Pvt. Ltd., New Delhi, India, 2010, 8120834607 / 9788120834606, First English Edition, Hardcover, New, New, 
Jainism is a tradition which dates back thousands of years, which is unbelievably rich and profound, and which has certain unmistakable signs of identity. Contrary to what some might think, it is not in any sense a poor relation of Buddhism, nor is a strange, atheistic and ascetic sect within Hinduism. Jainism is, above all, the religion of non-violence (ahimsa), an ideal which all other religions of India were subsequently to make theirs and which was made universal by Gandhi in the 20th century. Like Buddhism, Jainism is a religion without God which paradoxically opens to the truly sacred in the deepest reaches of all living beings in the cosmos. And it is also the religion of non-absolutism (anekantavada), a particular form of philosophical pluralism, which seems astonishingly modern. Printed Pages: 549 with numerous colour and b/w illustrations. 036324
