 DESCRIPTION
spacer

The A-to-Z of Jainism is a unique quick-reference book about a religion with an unbroken history of more than 2,500 years, and one which has influenced India's culture throughout this period.

At the core of Jainism's teachings is non-violence (ahimsa), which Mahatma Gandhi brought to world consciousness by adopting it as the guiding principle in the campaign he led for India's freedom. In Jainism, non-violence extends equally to man's relationship with all natural life, a sensitivity being articulated anew in contemporary times by a concern for the environment and animal rights, etc.

This book covers all important touchstones of Jainism in more than 450 crisp, alphabetical entries spanning:

- The basic teachings of Jainism;
- The life of Mahavira, the founder of the religion;
- The main sectarian traditions of Jainism, and mendicant and lay practices;
- Important Jain scriptures;
- Influential Jain leaders and scholars;
- Sacred and historic Jain sites;
- Jain prayers and pilgrimages, beliefs, rituals and ceremonies.

A detailed Introduction provides a holistic overview of Jainism; and a chronology highlights important Jain milestones. An extensive, subject-wise bibliography guides interested readers to in-depth resources on various topics.
