An ecological review of Jainism

Author(s): Dr. Rashmi Rekha Goswami

Abstract: Jainism is one of the oldest living religions which formed a vital part of the mainstream of ancient Indian life, contributing greatly to its philosophical, moral, religious, social, artistic and political heritage. The Jaina philosophy is a realistic philosophy which is well-known for its humanistic perspective and therefore its teachings are pertinent in all ages. With the mutual sensitivity towards all kinds of beings, the Jainas have many centuries ago provided a strong voice for the development of eco-friendly behaviour. The moral stance of preservation and sensitization of nature is found in the mainstream of Jaina philosophy. Emphasizing on the observance of ahiàsä in different realms of life, this system actually boost up the consciousness that all life belong to the same global family and nobody has the right to hurt or harm them. An analysis of the Jaina system from ecological perspective is going to be discussed in this paper.
