Author(s): Dr. Amborish Adhyapok

Abstract: The Moral principles of Jainism indicate that this philosophy represents the practical application of an ideal life. The systematic moral discipline laid down by Jaina Philosophy lights up one person from the common level and makes him enabled of knowing and practicing truth through a highly moral and spiritual course of conduct. Jainism is said to be based on the three basic principles known as Ratnatrayé or the “Three Gems viz. right belief, right knowledge and right conduct. Jainism is a system that has taken up the path of non-violence for ages and is still applying this ideal to mankind’s practical life in the contemporary age. It lays emphasis on the practice of the principles of non-violence in every individual from which it is evident that its ultimate goal is the well – being of mankind and social improvement. Through this paper a modest effort is made with the objective of having an insight towards the ethical lessons prescribed in Jaina Philosophy.
