  6. jainsim

    Famous for its promotion of nonviolence and often paired with Buddhism as one of ancient India's two greatest dissenting religions, Jainism is currently professed by roughly 0.4 percent of the population of India. Its adherents are prominent in business, and some of modern India's wealthiest and most powerful families are Jains. Jain communities are divided between a majority of lay men and women and a much smaller mendicant elite of peripatetic monks and nuns. The mendicants are a source of teaching and blessings for the laity, who in turn supply them with food and other forms of support. A disagreement over monastic discipline underlies the division between Jainism's two main sects: the Shvetambaras (white-clad), whose monks and nuns wear white garments, and the Digambaras (space-clad), whose monks wear no clothing.

    Origin
    Jainism first emerged into historical visibility in the sixth century b.c.e. when it was one among many religious movements of the period that stressed world renunciation and rejected the religious culture and ritualism of the Brahman priestly class. Western scholars often single out Mahavira (who lived, according to Shvetambara tradition, from c. 599–527 b.c.e.) as Jainism's founder. The Jains, however, maintain that Jainism's teachings are eternal and uncreated, and consider Mahavira to have been only the most recent of an infinite series of great Jain teachers. In fact, although Jainism's roots predate Mahavira, he played a key role in defining doctrines and practices that became central to Jainism as it evolved. Viable monastic communities with lay followings formed and grew after Mahavira's death. Patronized mainly by newly emerging urban classes (especially merchants) Jainism spread in two directions from its region of origin in the Ganges River basin: down India's eastern coast into the south and westward in the direction of Mathura. The division between the Svetambaras and Digambaras crystallized in the fifth century c.e. The south ultimately became the heartland of the Digambaras; there they flourished and found royal patronage, especially in Karnataka. The Shvetambaras became prominent in the west, especially in what is now Gujarat and Rajasthan.

    Canonical Texts
    Although their soteriological beliefs are basically the same, the Shvetambaras and Digambaras possess separate bodies of scripture. All Jains believe that their most ancient scriptures, known as the Purvas, have been lost, and that existing texts represent only a remnant of Mahavira's actual teachings. The Shvetambara canon, usually said to consist of forty-five texts, probably assumed its present form in the fifth century c.e. Its most important texts are the twelve Angas (or limbs, one of which has been lost) and twelve Upangas (subsidiary limbs); they deal with a vast range of subjects, including doctrine, monastic discipline, duties of the laity, cosmography, and much else. The Digambaras reject the Shvetambara canon as inauthentic. Their most important texts, each containing material on the soul and the nature of its bondage, are two: the Shatkhandagam (Scripture in Six Parts), dating from the second century c.e., and a slightly later work entitled Kasayaprabhata (Treatise on the Passions).

    Doctrine
    The term Jain (in Sanskrit, Jaina ) means someone who venerates the jinas. Jina (conqueror) in this context refers to one who, by conquering desires and aversions, achieves liberation from the bondage of worldly existence. Achieving such liberation is the object of Jain belief and practice.

    Jains believe that the cosmos contains an infinite number of immaterial and indestructible souls (jivas ). In common with other Indic traditions, the Jains also believe that each soul is reborn after death, and that the type of body it inhabits depends on the moral character of its deeds in past lives. According to Jainism, souls exist in every cranny of the cosmos: they inhabit the bodies of deities, humans, the inhabitants of hell, and plants and animals, and are also present in earth, water, fire, and air. Because the cosmos was never created, each soul has been wandering from one embodied state to another from beginningless time, and will continue to do so for infinite time to come unless it achieves liberation.

    The cause of the soul's bondage is karma (action), which in other Indic religious traditions refers to the process by which one's good or bad acts give rise to consequences to be experienced in one's present or subsequent lives. The Jains, however, maintain that karma is an actual material substance (often likened to a kind of dust) that pervades the cosmos; it adheres to the soul, and the encumbrance of accumulated karmic matter is responsible for the soul's continuing rebirth. Karmic matter is drawn toward the soul by volitional actions, and its adhesion to the soul is a consequence of the emotional state of the actor. The passions, especially those of desire and aversion, create a moisture-like stickiness that causes karmic matter to build up on the soul.

    To achieve liberation, therefore, one must avoid attracting more karmic matter and shed one's already existing accumulations. This is a complex and arduous process that begins with the awakening of faith in Jain teachings and ends with the removal of the last vestiges of the soul's burden of karmic matter. The liberated soul then rises to the abode of liberated souls at the top of the cosmos, where it will exist for all of endless time to come in a condition of omniscient bliss.

    Avoiding violence is essential to one's progress toward liberation. Because violent actions are associated with the passions that contribute to the influx and adhesion of karmic matter, Jains are strongly committed to nonviolence (ahimsa ). At a minimum, Jains should be vegetarian. Observant Jains avoid even vegetarian foods deemed to involve excessive violence in their acquisition or preparation. Root vegetables such as potatoes are proscribed because they are believed to contain multiple souls. Such restrictions are most onerous for monks and nuns who are debarred from activities that run the risk of harming even the humblest and most microscopic of living things. Lay Jains have been attracted to business precisely because buying, selling, and banking are activities that do not involve physical violence.

    Ascetic practice is also essential to the attainment of liberation. Often likened to a fire that burns away karmic matter, ascetic practice subdues harmful passions that bring about the influx and adhesion of karmic matter and removes already existing karmic accumulations. Jain mendicants are renowned for the severity of their asceticism, and even lay Jains are expected to engage in periodic fasts and other ascetic practices.

    The Jains maintain that the truth of their beliefs is guaranteed by the omniscience of their teachers. Known as tirthankaras ("ford-makers") or jinas, they are human beings who attained omniscience by their own efforts and without the guidance of other teachers, and who, before becoming fully liberated, imparted liberating knowledge to others. The Jains maintain that our section of the cosmos is subject to an eternally repeating cycle of world improvement and decline. Each ascent and descent is immensely long, and in each cycle exactly twenty-four tirthankaras successively appear. We are currently nearing the end of a descending era, and Mahavira was the twenty-fourth and hence the final tirthankara of our era and part of the cosmos. No new tirthankaras will appear until the next ascending period.

    The concept of omniscience, seen as a natural quality of the soul when unoccluded by karmic matter, underlies Jainism's celebrated doctrine of epistemological relativity. Known as syadvad (the doctrine of "may be"), it holds that in contrast with omniscient knowledge, which incorporates all points of view simultaneously, ordinary knowledge discloses only partial glimpses of reality.

    Contemporary Jainism
    Although it was once a proselytizing religion and continues vigorously to promote vegetarianism and animal welfare, Jainism has become a religion into which one is born by virtue of birth in a particular family, lineage, or caste. The castes to which Jains belong are typically merchant castes, although there are many Jains in other occupations, including agriculture. The Jains cannot be said to constitute a single community. Even in situations where they live in close proximity, relations between Shvetambaras and Digambaras are usually minimal because they belong to different castes, and are frequently adversarial, especially because of disputes over control of sacred sites claimed by both sects.

    A major recent development in Jainism is the emergence of a diaspora-based religious subculture. The spread of Jainism beyond the subcontinent has been inhibited historically by the requirement that monks and nuns travel only on foot, but in recent times the number of Jains living outside India has risen to around 100,000, most of whom live in North America, Great Britain, and Africa. The difficulty of practicing Jainism in the traditional way abroad has led to a weakening of sectarian differences. It has also given rise to a tendency to stress the contemporary relevance of Jainism by downplaying traditional soteriology and capitalizing on Jainism's emphasis on nonviolence and vegetarianism by recasting the tradition in an eco-religious and environmentalist mold.

  7. lord Mahavir, as usual, was always going from one place to other, he stopped near a big tree to meditate. While he was meditating, a cow herder came there with his cows. The cow herder wanted someone to look after the cows so he can go somewhere to finish something else he wanted to do. The cow herder asked Lord Mahavir if he would look after his cows for a few hours. Lord Mahavir was in deep meditation, and did not reply to the cow herder. However, the cow herder went away thinking that Lord Mahavir had heard him.

    In a few hours, the cow herder returned and found that his cows were missing. He asked Lord Mahavir, "Where are my cows? What did you do with them?" Lord Mahavir was still in meditation and did not reply. He started wondering. "Where could they be?" Since, Lord Mahavir did not reply, the cow herder searched for them everywhere in the valley, but could not find them.

    He came back where Lord Mahavir was , and to his amazement, his cows were there standing near Lord Mahavir. Lord Mahavir was still meditating. The cow herder got very angry at Lord Mahavir because he thought that Lord Mahavir was hiding the cows. So, the cow herder got out his rope and was about to whip Lord Mahavir with it. Just then an angel from heaven came down and held the rope.

    "Can�t you see that Lord Mahavir is in deep meditation", said the angel that had come from heaven.

    "But he tricked me!" said the cow herder. The angel replied, "He is a God. He does not care for your cows. He was in meditation and did not hear you. He did not do anything to your cows. You would have gotten bad karmas for thinking of hurting him."

    There was no response by the cow herder. He realized that he had made a mistake. The cow herder apologized to Lord Mahavira and went away silently. The angel went back up in the sky. The angel was happy that he could stop Mahavir from suffering. Mahavir didn�t have any bad feelings towards this man, because he held no anger towards anyone.

    We should not make hasty decisions because we can be wrong. We should, also, not hurt anyone, and should observe forgiveness instead of anger. This way we can stop new karmas from coming into our soul.

    Mahavira was the 24th and last Tirthankara of Jainism. Also known as Vardhamana, he was an Indian ascetic philosopher and one of the principal figures of Jainism which is one of the major religions of the Indian subcontinent. Mahavira was a contemporary of Gautama Buddha, the primary figure in Buddhism on whose teachings Buddhism was founded. Mahavira was born into a royal family of Kshatriyas in present day Bihar, India. As the son of a king he had a privileged childhood and was raised in the lap of luxury. He grew up to be a brave lad and is once said to have controlled a fierce serpent. However, with time he realized that his luxurious life did not provide him any satisfaction and at the age of 30 he renounced all his worldly ties and embarked on a search for the ultimate spiritual truth. He underwent severe penance for twelve and a half years following which he finally attained ‘Kevala Jnana’, the highest stage of perception. He spent the next several years travelling all over India teaching his philosophy. He also established the rules of religious life for Jain monks and nuns

    Childhood & Early Life
    The Jain texts state that Mahavira was born in 599 BC into a royal family of Kshatriyas, in Bihar, India. His childhood name was 'Vardhamana', which means "One who grows".
    His parents were King Siddartha of Kundgraam and Queen Trishala. His father was the chief of the Jnatrika clan, an indigenous oligarchical tribe. Hailing form a royal family, he had all the luxuries of life at his disposal.
    He grew up to be a very brave boy and once brought a fierce serpent under control. This earned him the name “Mahavira” meaning “Great Warrior” in Sanskrit.
    His father’s kingdom was a democratic one in which the king was chosen by voting. Thus he was exposed to the values of freedom and equality from a young age, and these would influence his thinking in future as well.

    Later Years
    The various luxuries of life gave no satisfaction to Mahavira and he experienced an unquenchable thirst for spiritual enlightenment. So at the age of 30 he decided to leave behind his worldly life and family and embarked on a journey of self-discovery in order to seek the spiritual truth.
    Traditional religious practices of that time were based on rites and rituals. But Mahavira found no peace of mind through these mindless rituals as they could not offer him the answers to the questions he sought.
    He wanted to obtain spiritual release from the karmic cycle of life and death and realized that it was possible only through inward self-discipline. Thus he started living a life of severe austerity and radical physical asceticism.
    He wore the same clothes for a period of around one year and after that, he discarded his clothes and walked about naked. He decided to have no possessions at all, not even a bowl for obtaining alms or drinking water; he accepted alms in the hollow of his palm.
    He strictly followed the principle of ahimsa or non-violence. He allowed insects to crawl all over his body and did not harm them even when they bit him. He endured all the physical hardships of his ascetic life peacefully. People were taken aback by the sight of his naked and injured body and insulted him, yet he very patiently endured all the abuses hurled at him.
    After a period of twelve and a half years of such a severe lifestyle, he finally attained ‘Kevala jnana’, meaning “absolute knowledge” or “supreme knowledge”. Thus he attained the realization of perfect perception, knowledge, power, and bliss.
    The era in which Mahavira lived was a turbulent period marked by the cultural domination of the Brahmans who claimed that they were purer than the other castes. Several members of the Kshatriya caste opposed the rituals and practices of the Brahmans which included large-scale Vedic sacrifices (yajna) that involved the killing of many animals. Mahavira became one such individual who advocated non-violence and opposed the killing of innocent creatures.
    He traveled all over India teaching his philosophy which was based on eight cardinal (law of trust) principles, three metaphysical, and five ethical. The ethical principles were “Ahimsa” or non-violence, “Satya” or truthfulness, “Asteya” or non-stealing, “Brahmacharya” or chastity, and “Aparigraha” or non-possession.
    Having attained the Kevala jnana at the age of 42, Mahavira preached and taught for the next 30 years. His teachings are as relevant in today’s contemporary world as they were in the era he lived in.

  13. @ 1:54, a guy is scratching right inside his bare butt-hole. I think decency is secondary here, whatever they do is sacred…!

  14. What's wrong with this people..why they r naked in front of young girls.. shame on ya.. jain people.. Do u guys think that this is religion. This is actually madness..you guys a crazy… If i was there then I probably cut his penis?

  16. I can see women follwing jainism but why they r not naked. Women admuring men cock and butt. Filthy religion… im sure every women comes here to enjoy the nudity

  17. why there is no gender equality in jainism,only male nudity makes jainism logicless, and why they think only male can attain

  20. لا اله الا الله وحده لا شريك له واشهد ان محمدا عبده ورسوله صلى الله عليه وسلم

  21. teachings of jainism n their tirthankars is good. but some shit is really awkward which needs to evolve.

  22. if nudity is banned then how come religion get away with this. ban both nude sadhus in hindus and jains. I have seen one in public with my freind and it was awkard AF. its stupidity in 2019 , go do this in himalyas or ganga. not in cities please.

  23. Sin is pre-existing in all. Sin pre-dates The Bible. The Bible explains origins of sin. The Bible provides remedy for sin through Jesus Christ. The Bible is best selling book in the world for this reason.

    Sin is the opium.

    In The Bible we know Who made the world, who marred it, who ransacked it, and Who restored it.

    Media, Police, Defense, Judiciary, Penitentiary, Security, Contracts confirm sin exists.

    God created universe, natural laws, made man in His image, gave talents, instructed man to explore and multiply. We are made good with good purpose. We are good. Then sin entered and we fallen. Disease, despair, death entered. Sin plays spoilsport.

    Unloose the Soul from the tight knot of sin. Soul outlasts death.

    Religion says "Do". Jesus Christ says "Done".

    Sinners cannot save themselves from sin. Jesus Christ, the Holy God, intervened to save us from sin.

    Jesus Christ came from heaven (The First Christmas), died willingly for our sins on The Cross (The First Good Friday), and resurrected death (The Resurrection Day, also linked to Easter). Jesus Christ lived a Holy life, while on earth.

    Unable to find any motive for Jesus Christ to die willingly on Cross and resurrect – except His love to save us from pre-existing sin.

    Jesus Christ suffered, understands our pain. He raised victorious, we can too.

    Salvation from sin is free gift of God in Jesus Christ. Salvation is not earned through works or deeds or pilgrimages or rituals or ceremonies or traditions or cultures or public displays or making sacrifices.

    Believe, repent of sins and accept Jesus Christ, and be saved. Simple. Nothing to lose, everything to gain.
