Jains in the World presents a detailed fieldwork‐based study of Jainism, focusing on the Svetambar Murtipujak Jains of north Gujarat.

The book explains the institutional structures that make up Jain society and gives a comprehensive exposition of the major facets of Jain practice. A Jain is a follower of Jina.

A Jina is a victor or Conqueror. The Jains are followers of certain ascetics who obtained omniscience and who preached a doctrine which promises a super mundane bliss of eternal salvation. Jainism originated centuries before Buddhism, but revived by Mahavira, the 24th Tirthankar of Jainism.

This book presents a detailed fieldwork-based study of the ancient Indian religion of Jainism. Drawing on field research in northern Gujarat and on the study of both ancient Sanskrit and Prakrit and modern vernacular Jain religious literature, John Cort provides a rounded portrait of the religion as it is practiced today.

The holy book of Jainism is a collection of texts known as Agam Literature or the Agam Sutras. Jains see these texts, which are the transcriptions of Lord Mahavir's sermons, as sacred documents. Jainism is an Eastern religion with origins in the Indus river valley dating back to B.C.

Jainism don't have any specific holy book like the Bhagavad Geeta,the Quran or the have certain scriptures which are considered as very scriptures are called as Agams.

Agams are the jain texts which are based on the discourse. Bhagchandra Jain 'Bhaskar' – scholar of Jainism, Buddhism, religious studies and ancient languages.; recipient of the President's (Rastrapati) Award; has written over 40 books and published more than research papers; Bal Patil – author, journalist, Jain activist and ex-member of Minority Commission, Government of Maharashtra.

Today there are some 6 million Jains worldwide, representing less than 2% of India's population. The Jain community in India is centred in Rajasthan and Gujarat.

The Jain Path: Jainism is one of the world's oldest religions, and perhaps the most demanding, rational and radical of all of them, attaching a great importance to individual responsibility. Today we are questioning our own inherited values and also rediscovering ancient traditions.

The Indian religion of Jainism, whose central tenet involves non-violence to all creatures, is one of the world's oldest and least-understood faiths. Dundas looks at Jainism in its social and doctrinal context, explaining its history, sects, scriptures and ritual, and describing how the Jains have, over years, defined themselves as a unique religious community.5/5(1).I was surprised to discover that Jainism dates from the time of the Buddha, and has such a large following today.

The most enjoyable parts of the book were its discussions of Jainist ethics and the nature of the Life by: Today there are about ten million Jains around the world, but most live in India.

The Jains believe in rebirth of the soul. That means they believe that when a living being dies the soul is born in another body. Eventually Jains hope to break free of the cycle of birth and rebirth and gain salvation.
