A keen competition is going on everywhere. Only a few are thriving and prospering, whilst a majority of people lead a life of scarcity, want and impoverishment. There is tension, worry and unhappiness in the life of every one. Mr. F.L. Lucas, an English critic said, "Many a time, after pondering, I am amazed that some day the human civilisation would come to an end, not by an atom bomb, or famines or any such means, but it would come to an end by man's own intellect and deterioration of self-control in the midst of the tension of the highly artificial civilisation." Role of religion Under these circumstances we have to examine, how Jain religion can play a positive role in mitigating the sufferings of the common people. Jainism is one of the oldest religious traditions of the world. A long generation of Tirthankaras, Acaryas, saints and scholars belonged to this tradition. Lord Mahavira was the twenty-fourth Tirthankara of the present era. Mahavira, born with no supernatural powers, rose by dint of his determination, self-discipline, compassion, forbearance and other qualities of heart to the highest position among men and acquired the status of a Tirthankara or omniscient. 2001 Mahavira and his Teachings Lord Mahavira observed rigorous austerities spread over for twelve and a half years till he achieved kevala-jnana (omniscience) which was his aim behind initiation in the ascetic order. He faced many adversities and calamities brought upon by natural and supernatural forces during this period. In the thirteenth year of his ascetic order, he Page #7 -------------------------------------------------------------------------- ________________ 90 JAIN JOURNAL: Vol-XXXV, No. 3 January 2001 attained infinite knowledge, infinite intuition and infinite bliss. Only aster obtaining omniscience, he began to preach and give discourses. He stressed the importance of right faith, right knowledge and right conduct. He stated that a man could rise high only by humility, noble conduct and discipline. He established caturvidha sangha (the fourfold congregation of monks, nuns, laymen and laywomen, so as to provide proper guidance to the monks and nuns and to inspire and stimulate the laymen and laywomen in their religious practices. In the sangha established by Lord Mahavira there was no difference between men and women. Both were regarded as equal. The women were also initiated as nuns, which was a great revolutionary step at that time. Now we have to examine how the teachings of Lord Mahavira can improve the life of ordinary people and bring peace and prosperity to them. Some critics say that the principles of Jainism are so difficult that they cannot be practised by ordinary people. This is a fallacy. Teachings of Lord Mahavira are grouped into two parts. 1. Teachings to sramanas (mendicants) and teachings to householders (Sravakas). Sramanas have no doubt to follow very rigorous and extensive restraints, because they proceed to the path of sarva-virati or total renunciation. Once they take pravrajya (renunciation), they have to observe the panca Mahauratas or the five great vows of total abstinence from violence, untruth, stealing, sexual indulgence and possessions. They proceed to the path of liberation which is the state of infinite consciousness, absolute freedom and eternal bliss. They devote their whole life to scriptural study, service to the guru and dedicate themselves to preaching. But so far as the householders are concerned, the teachings of Lord Mahavira are much simpler. Thirty five Rules of Conduct Jain Acaryas have described the duties and responsibilities of the laity elaborately. These are called 35 virtues of a Marganusari (one who follows the path shown by Jinas). These rules prevent a laity from deviating the spiritual path and prompt him to rise higher. It is the means by which he gets the right attitude of living. It is due to these virtues he begins to stop the karmic influx. From the sincere practice of these rules, his soul gets purified. Acarya Sri Bhuvanabhanusrisvaraji has nicely classified these rules into following four groups in his book "A Handbook of Jainology": I Eleven obligatory duties II Eight derogations that ought to be discarded III Eight virtues to be cultivated and IV Eight endeavours to be carried out with diligence. Page #8 -------------------------------------------------------------------------- ________________ JAIN: THE JAINA WAY OF LIFE 1. The Eleven Duties A householder devotee should follow some kind of business, trade or profession, which is not of an ignoble or degrading nature. He should do so in a just and honest way and in proportion to his capital, or in case of employment under other people, in proportion to his strength. The business should not harm any men, animals, fish, birds or insects. Therefore the business must not be that of a butcher, brewer, wine merchant, gun-maker or anything which involves destruction of life. When money is earned honestly the mind remains peaceful and the wealth is enjoyed without any disturbance. The layman should not marry a person from the same lineage. He should marry a person of different gotra but with similar character, taste, culture and language etc. This will result in harmonious relationship thereby rendering discord and misunderstanding less likely. He should respect parents and elders. He should serve the ascetics who come to him for bhiksa (food) as well as guests with due respect. He should also help the needy and destitutes and satisfy their needs. He should maintain his dependents and make them work for the well-being of the family. He should live in a house which is not accessible to thieves and rogues and cannot be entered by undesirable people. He should dress according to his means but the dress should be decent and not gaudy. His expences should be in proportion to his income. He should eat and drink at the proper time in conformity with his constitution. Excessive eating should be avoided. Food should be taken only at home. He should fast when he is suffering from indigestion. II. Discarding eight Derogations These include giving up (i) calumny, (ii) betraying the trust, deceiving and cheating, (iii) gambling, (iv) the six internal foes viz. anger, pride, deceit, greed, attachment and aversion, (v) places of danger like battle field, places having epidemic or famine etc. (vi) meat eating, intoxicants and (vii) crimes which might lead to imprisonment. He should properly perform his household duties, but should not be careless in his religious duties. III. The eight virtues to be cultivated A layman should acquire the habit of discretion between right and wrong acts and should keep away from ignoble sinful acts. He should be a farsighted person and plan properly for the future needs of his Page #9 -------------------------------------------------------------------------- ________________ 100 JAIN JOURNAL: Vol-XXXV, No. 3 January 2001 family. In undertaking any responsibility, he should always consider his strength and weaknesses. He should always keep his temperament, voice and appearance gentle and serene. IV. The eight endeavours He should always keep the company of noble people and admire their virtues. He should have compassionate attitude towards all and help everyone without selfishness. He should express gratitude to all who help him with humility. A layman should have svadhyaya of holy texts everyday and he should listen to the discourses of monks and nuns. He should try to understand tattvas and meaning of dharma sastras to know the path of right faith, right knowledge and right conduct. These virtues are prescribed so that a laity gains material prosperity and also spiritual advancement in his life. Thus we find that Jaina Acaryas have given very deep thought to practical day to day life of the laities. All these qualities will make a laity spiritually conscious and make his life peaceful and harmonious. Practice for higher advancement Those who want to rise higher in spiritual life, must follow five anuuratas (primary vows) prescribed for a householder which consists of partial observance of non-violence, truthfulness, non-stealing, chastity (to refrain from all illicit sexual relationships) and nonpossession. A householder should devote part of his time in dana (charity), sila (virtuous life), tapas (austerity) and bhavana (purification of thoughts). Non-violence Non-violence is the sense of equality of all living creatures. If you feel that every soud is independent and autonomous you will never trample on its right to live. This leads you to compassion and kindness towards all living beings and results in harmony and peace in the world. The principle of non-violence in Jainism embraces not only human beings but also animals, birds, plants, vegetables and creatures of earth, air and water. It is the holy law of compassion extended to body, mind and speech of a living being. Lord Mahavira says, "All living beings desire to live. They detest sorrow and death and desire a long and happy life. Hence one should not inflict pain on any creature, nor have any feeling of antipathy or enmity. One should be friendly towards all creatures." (Acaranga Sutra, Page #10 -------------------------------------------------------------------------- ________________ JAIN THE JAINA WAY OF LIFE The other vows All the other vows preached in Jainism are only an extension of the vow of non-violence. Truthfulness is essential to keep order and harmony in society. There are moments in life when one has to take hardships to keep up one's convictions. In business and in our dayto-day dealings our truthfulness is put to test. We have to practise it constantly to maintain our integrity. While observing the vow of nonstealing, one is required to earn his livelihood by honest means. We violate the vow of aprigraha by accepting and holding what is not needed by us. What we possess in surplus has to go to those who need it badly. The principle of continence is significant in maintaining the morals in society. 101 Thus we see that these principles, preached by Lord Mahavira, are universal in character and are applicable to every individual in any society. These simple rules can be practised without the least philosophical speculation, even by ordinary people. Integral View of Life Jainism takes an integral view of life. Faith or only knowledge by itself cannot take us to the path of salvation. We should have a combination of right faith, right knowledge and right conduct to tread the path of salvation. These constitute the three jewels of Jainism. Without right faith, there is no right knowledge and without right knowledge there is no virtuous conduct. Lord Mahavira says, "By knowledge one understands the nature of substances; by faith one believes in them; by conduct one puts an end to the flow of karmas and by austerity one attains purity." (Uttaradhyayana Sutra, 28.35) Concept of Karma The significant achievement of Tirthankara Mahavira's revolution in spiritual field was the upholding of the concept of karma in place of God, the creator. He says that man is the architect of his own destiny and he can rise only by his own efforts and not by the grace of any external agency. God is devoid of attachment, hence there is no need for him to create this universe which is beginingless and endless. Every inexplicable event in the life of an individual occurs due to the karmas accumulated in his previous birth. Karma is conceived as something essentially material which gets interlinked with soul which is conscious. As particles of dust get attached to the body smeared with oil, so does karma with the soul. Lord Mahavira says, "Attachment Page #11 -------------------------------------------------------------------------- ________________ 102 JAIN JOURNAL: Vol-XXXV, No. 3 January 2001 and aversion are the root causes of karma and karma originates from infatuation. Karma is the root cause of birth and death and these (birth and death) are said to be the source of misery." (Utta. Su 32.7). He further adds, "None can escape the effect of their own past karmas. (Utta. Su 4.3) Religion in Day to Day Activities A householder should lead his life in such a way that he continues religious practices faithfully everyday. There are six essentials which a Sravaka (householder) is expected to practise everyday in his life. These are enumerated below: 1. Samayika: It is defined as follows: "samayika is to be devoid of attachment and aversion and to be indifferent to life and death, gain and loss, fortune and misfortune, friend and foe, joy and sorrow" (Mulacara 23). A householder should do at least one camayika a day for 48 minutes. In this period, he should remain aloof from his domestic and business activities, He should devote his time in self-contemplation, meditation and scriptural study. 2. Caturvimsati stava : Worship of twenty four Tirthankaras by reciting their stotras and bhujans. Tirthankaras are deities free from attachment and aversion and by their worship we try to adhere to at least some of their virtues in our life. 3. Vandana : A sravaka should go everyday to the sadhus (mendicants) and sadhvis (nuns) and offer his reverential salutation. Association with such holy people results in development of virtues in life. Pratikramana : In this, self-contemplation and introspection should be done in the morning and in the evening. He should check up whether he is developing good qualities. If he has made any mistake he should repent for the same so that such mistakes do not recur. 5. Kayotsarga : This literary means abandonment of body. It is done in a standing or sitting posture of meditation. This helps in keeping the mind under control. It is said, "Just as fire fanned by powerful winds destroys heaps of firewood in no time, so also the fire of meditation destroys heaps of karmas in no time" (Dhyana-Sataka 101). Page #12 -------------------------------------------------------------------------- ________________ JAIN : THE JAINA WAY OF LIFE 103 6. Pratyakhyana: A Sravaka should take some vows everyday to purify his life. The aim of life is to realise the distinction between body and soul. The soul is everlasting but the body is perishable. Through pratyakhyana we develop qualities of self and abondon the negative traits which hamper our spiritual progress. Jaina Art of Living Jainism is a living religion. There are numerous monks and nuns and nearly ten million laities continuing the tradition, following virtually the same path prescribed by Jinas. Though the path of monks and nuns is very difficult, the path prescribed for the householders is inuch simpler. Here the stress is laid on simplicity and nobility. They should lead a life full of virtues and should keep away from the six vices. This has resulted in harmony and peace in individual and family life. It is due to this, even in the modern age, Jaina laity practises complete vegetarianism and do not take any intoxicants. They are also socially conscious and run a large number of Charitable Institutions for the cause of education, medical benefits and for service to the downtrodden. ernational www.jainel Page #13 -------------------------------------------------------------------------- ________________ THE BIBLIOGRAPHY OF THE SVETAMBARA CANON* 1-2 3 0.1 COMPLETE EDITIONS 9.

Dhaky, Lalbhai Dalpatbhad institute of Indology, Ahmedabad, and Bhogilal Leherchand Institute of Indology, Delhi, 1997, pp. xiv + 148 + 67 plates, price Rs. 400.00. One of the most authoritative books on Parsvanatha and his Dharanendra legend is the present one under review. It is a collection of fourteen articles on different aspects of Arhat Parsvanatha. Apart from editing the book, the editor M.A. Dhaky has also contributed three articles on Arhat Parsva and Dharanendra Nexus: An Introductory Estimation, Arhat Parsva with Dharanendra in Hymnic Literature and The Tirthas of Parsvanatha in Gujarat. All these articles are full of information and marked by distinctive features. Most of the papers were read at a Seminar organised by B.L. Institute of Indology, Delhi, in 1987. The convener of the Seminar was Professor M.A. Dhaky. "The papers in this volume", says Dr. Jitendra B. Shah in his Foreword, "we feel (and the scholars possibly will endorse), cast fresh light on the problem of the connection between Arhat Parsva and Nagaraja Dharanendra and thus push forward the frontiers of research on that score by some measure, besides adding information on several facets of research and issues related with the doctrine, sect, followers and representations of Arhat Parsva." The association of Dharanendra with Parsva was figured in the medieval narrative literature of the Jains. "When Parsva, after renunciation of worldly life was meditating (on the outskirts of Ahicchatra)", says M.A. Dhaky, "his past enemy, the tapasa-ascetic Kamatha, who after his death was reborn as a vyantara demi-god called Meghamali, conjured up a cloud bust, the fiercely gathering waters were intended to drown the Jina. At this juncture Nagendra Dharana, to whom Parsva had shown compassion in the former's previous birth as snake, appeared on the scene, lifted up the Jina from the waters, and protectively spread his five-hooded head as a canopy over him." This simple legend which is available in a few versions in the pre-medieval and medieval narrative literature as well as in the sculptural representations could be found in the Nirgrantha literature Page #42 -------------------------------------------------------------------------- ________________ BOOK REVIEW 133 from the first century B.C. - A.D. In Padmakirti's Pasanahacariu in Apabhramsa written in A.D. 1077 is represented the third Digambara version of the legend. U.P. Shah's article on The Historical Origin and Ontological Interpretation of Arhat Parsva's Association with Dharanendra is an interesting one and is also authenticated with textual references. Some articles containing the images and temples of Parsvanatha, such as, Images and Temples of Parsva in Central India by Amar Singh, Parsvanatha Images in Orissa and Bengal by D.R. Das, Parsvanatha Images in Ellora by Marutinandan Prasad Tiwari are illuminating and informative. Parsvanatha is also mentioned in southern India inscriptions, and these are Jina Parsva and his Temples in Inscriptions: Southern India (C. 5th to 11th cent. A.D) Andhra Pradesh, Kerala, and Tamil Nadu by K.V. Ramesh and Jina Parsva and his Temples in Inscriptions : Southern India (Karnataka) (C. 5th to 11th century A.D.) by Madhav N. Katti. It contains 67 plates of Parsvanatha collected from different museums of India showing different aspects of Parsvanatha figures belonging to different centuries. All these plates are not chronologically arranged. On the whole, this is a well-written text on Parsvanatha and his Dharanendra legend and every piece of article is well-edited and every piece of information is also well-documented. The quality of paper and printing is of high order and binding is done well. A well-authenticated life story of Parsvanatha would have been an added quality to this book. Every ardent scholar of Jainism must peruse this volume for his research. Manatungacarya aur unke Stotra-ed by Madhusudan Dhaky and Jitendra Shah, Sharadaben Chimanbhai Educational Research Centre, Ahmedabad, 1997, pp. (viii) + 135. The two editors - M.A. Dhaky and J.B. Shah-are to be congratulated for bringing out a treatise on Manatunga and his workBhaktamara-stora. In their elaborate Hindi introduction, the editors have discussed several problems on the Bhaktamara-stotra, such as, the story behind the composition of the work, the sloka-number of Bhaktamara, the philosophy of the work, Bhayahara-stotra and the comparison, the date of Manatunga and his followers. It also contains only the texts of Bhaktamara-stotram and Bhayahara-stotram The Page #43 -------------------------------------------------------------------------- ________________ 134 JAIN JOURNAL : Vol-XXXV, No. 3 January 2001 latter work is in Prakrit. The text is exceptionally well-printed and the quality of paper is remarkable. The Bhaktamara-stotra text is printed in bid type very pleasing to the eye. The introduction is marvellously written. The analysis of the topic is logically presented, and I personally agree with lots of their arguments. The book is recommended to all lovers of Jainism and particularly to those who are the fans of Bhaktamara-stotra. The Rajputs of Rajputana-A Glimpse of Medieval Rajasthan : Dr. M.S. Naravane; A.P.H. Publishing Corporation, 5, Ansari Road, Daryaganj, New Delhi-110002. Rs. 700. "This is not history in the true sense. It is also not a mere travelogue. I can call it a journey through history which took me to the major signposts of that history and to the people whose ancestors made that history." So says the author, who was Wing Commander in the Indian Air Force, who after retirement, returned to his first love -- Indian medieval history. He travelled alone in his scooter to all important towns and forts and monuments in Maharashtra and Rajasthan. Hundreds of tourists visit Jaipur or Bikaner, Ranthambore or Chittoor and look at them with awe and wonder how these mighty forts or palaces could possibly fall to any invader. Others, keen on seeing temples, visit the exquisite Dilwara temples at Abu or Nathadwara or Eklingji in Udaipur. But what lies behind these historical monuments ? The author seeks to provide the information with great care and deep interest. By extensive field trips and interviewing the local people and consulting authentic historical writings, he has been able to present the true essence of the rich culture and traditions of the Rajputs who epitomise chivalry and exemplary courage. He has devoted individual chapters on social, political and military ethos of the Rajputs. The colourful dress, ornaments, marriage system, polygamy, Sati and Jauhar, food and hospitality, religion, art and architecture are described lucidly. The author has made a critical analysis of the strength and weaknesses of the Rajput army. They committed tactical blunders Page #44 -------------------------------------------------------------------------- ________________ BOOK REVIEW 135 and turned an almost sure victory into defeat. The brave and triumphant Prithviraj Chauhan met with his defeat and death due to tactical mistakes and over-confidence and also unwarranted lenience to the enemies. Lack of cohesion, failure to adapt to changing pattern of warfare and use of arms are also cited as causes for their failure. The sword and the shield, the musket and the bows have long since been consigned to the museum. What lives on to the great fortune of India is the Rajputs' courage and loyalty which find their outlet in the regiment of the Indian Army. In the chapter entitled "A journey through history", the author takes the reader to all important places and gives interesting accounts of forts, palaces, temples, fairs and festivals for which Rajasthan has become so famous. The book makes an enjoyable reading - factual and analytical. K.V. Raman, from The Hindu 22 August 2000 nal Use Only Page #45 -------------------------------------------------------------------------- ________________ 136 JAIN JOURNAL : Vol-XXXV, No. 3 January 2001 NEWS ON JAINISM AROUND THE WORLD Need to protect Jain rock-cut beds The 17 rock-cut beds of Jain ascetics atop the 300-foot-tall hillock at Sittannavasal, 20 km frorn Pudukottai, dating back to 2nd century B.C. are badly in need of protection from indiscriminate blasting of rocks from the quarries at the foot of the hills. Pudukottai region had been an important centre for Jain ascetics from the early days. Quite a few megalithic burial sites are strewn all around the hill, indicating that Sittannavasal was an important human settlement in those distant days. Sittannavasal, Vellanur, Thenimalai, Ammachatram, Kudumiyanmalai, Chettipatti etc. were centres where the Jain ascetics had chosen to lead their secluded life. With the ascendance of the Pandya kings in Madurai in the 7th century, and the active support given to Hindu savants by the kings, many Jain monks withdrew to nearby Pudukottai district. The Jain rock-cut beds of Sittannavasal are not only the oldest, but also artistically and historically most significant. Most of the beds are having a raised portion akin to the pillow, and some of them are very broad. Near the pillow portion of one of the beds, there is a Tamil Brahmi inscription which reads that the bed was constructed as an offering to the Jain monk, by a devotee, Ilayar Enbaan of Sithuposil, the old name of Sittannavasal. There are similar inscriptions mentioning the names of the Jain monks to whom the beds were made as an offering The entire Jain rock beds could be reached by climbing the steep rocky clope and after crossing the seven steps and hence the Sittannavasal rock-beds are called 'Ezhadipattam". According to Mr. P. Rajendran, Conservation Officer of the Archaeological Survey of India, the cavern measuring about 50 metres long and five metres wide, which sports the magnificent rock-cut beds, is exposed to the continuous high pressure gusts of wind created by the blasting of rocks in the quarries--one situated just at the foot of the hill and a series of quarries at Kazhugumalai village, located less than three metres away. Already minor cracks had developed on the roof of the cavern due to the high pressure gusts of winds, and it is Page #46 -------------------------------------------------------------------------- ________________ NEWS ON JAINISM AROUND THE WORLD feared that unless certain restrictions are placed on the use of high explosives, the cavern faces risk of collapsing in the near future. However, there is some ray of hope. Mr. Chandrakant Kamble, District Collector, who has assumed office recently, and has launched a plan to revive the DWACRA women groups for quarrying, has assured that licences for new quarrying will be issued only after ascertaining whether they would be at a safe distance from the archaeological monuments. 137 The lease period of the quarry at the foot of the hill would be expiring very soon, and it would not be renewed he assured. A decision has been taken to stop quarrying near Kudumiyanmalai, Sittannavasal, and Ammachatram, since they were close to protect monuments of the ASI. HC settles row over Jain rituals The Mumbai High Court has held that observing be tithi calender and performing navangi guru worship by devotees was not illegal or contrary to the principles or tenets of Jain religion. The Hindu 7July 2000 The ruling will have a bearing on the two crore Jain community spread all over the country, because it puts at rest the controversy over the manner of gurupoojan (worshipping guru) and observance of tithis in the absence of any such mention in Jain religious scriptures since time immemorial. While one section believed in ekang (in reverence to one point of guru's body) and ek tithi, the other followed navang (in reverence to nine points of the body) and be tithi. However, there was no dispute over the manner in which idol should be worshipped. The judgement was delivered by Justice Rajan Kochar who recently upheld a lower court's order which restrained Matunga Jain Shwetamber Murti Pujak Tapagachha Sangh, a trust, from putting up signboards at Upashraya (temple banning Navangi worship and the practice of following be tithi calender.

The New Indian Express 31 July 2000 HC order on Jains' worship In a landmark verdict, the Mumbai High Court has held that observing 'Be Tithi' calendar and performing 'Navangi' Guru worship by devotees was no illegal or contrary to the principles or tenets of the Jain religion. The ruling will have a bearing on the two-crore Jain community spread all over the country, because it puts at rest the controversy over the manner of Gurupoojan' (worshipping Guru) and observance of'titis' in the absence of any such mention in Jain religious scriptures since time immemorial. While one section believed in 'Ekang (in reverence to one point of the Guru's body) and 'Ek Tithi', the other followed 'Navang' (in reverence to nine points of the body) and 'Be Tithi'. However, there was no dispute over the manner in which the idol should be worshipped. The judgement was delivered by Justice Ranjan Kochar, who recently upheld a lower court's order which restrained the Matunga Jain Shwetamber Murti Pujak Tapagachha Sangh, a trust, from putting up signboards at the Upashraya (temple banning Navangi' worship and the practice of following 'Be Tithi' calendar. A few devotees had challenged in a civil court resolutions passed by the trust in its general body meeting on July 1, 1998 banning 'Navangi' worship. The court ruled in their favour and the aggreived trust siled an appeal before the High Court. The judge observed, "Guru Vandana will totaily depend on the devotce and the Guru. No trust can permit or allow any member of the Jain community to perform 'Guru Pooja' in a particular way. There is nothing wrong is a devotee or member of the trust performs Pooja in accordance with his own 'Bhakti', which, however, should not be against Jain religion." The Judge observed "If the Guru accepts such a form of worship (Navangi), I do not find how the trust can prevent or prohibit 'Gurupoojan' by a devotee in this manner.' Page #48 -------------------------------------------------------------------------- ________________ NEWS ON JAINISM AROUND THE WORLD 139 "It may be that 'Navangi' was acceptable to a microscopic minority among Jains and may be it was also not universally accepted. But there is no Jain Shastra or scripture to show that 'Navangi' is against the tenets of Jain religion." 'Navangi' might be of recent origin but such a practice was in vogue in a section of the Jain community and if such worship was in accordance with religious tenets, practices and usage, the trust had no powers to restrict devotees from performing it in the Upashraya. It also had no right to allow only 'Ekangi' worship, Justice Kochar ruled. The trust was empowered to frame regulations on the administration of the shrine or place of worship or any other property, but it could not lay down guidelines for the mode of worship, the Judge remarked. The Judge also went through the scheme framed by the High Court many years ago for the administration of the same trust and found that there was no clause to show ban on 'Navangi' form of worship. "According to me, the trust cannot choose to invite only such gurus who follow either 'Ekangi Guru Pooja' or 'Navangi' worship. It has to treat all of them equally without any discrimination. It can, however, fix any day of the week for 'Navangi' worship to avoid inconvenience to others", he opined. The Hindu 31 July 2000 Lampless Jain temple turns 100 The 'Lampless Jain temple' in Mattancherry is celebrating its centenary and the Sthanakvasi Jains are commemorating it during *Paryushan Parva', falling between Aug 26 and Sept 9. Lasting for nearly eight days, Paryushan Parva is the most important festival of the Jains when they observe severe penance, undertake fasts and do charities. On Sept 3 they observe 'Samuhik Kshamapana' collective pardon, when they seek pardon from all living beings in the world. They also grant pardon for any wrong done to them. The prosperous Jain community in Kochi has about 1200 Swethambara Jains and 400 of them belong to the Sthanakvasi sect who worship without idols, pujas, incense or flowers, or lamps (hence the name lampless temple), as they believe that even flowers have life and that light can attract flies and kill them.

The Deravasi Jains worship idols, perform pujas, light lamps and offer prayers. The Lampless temple, the only one of its kind in Kerala, is one hundred years old. It's just a cool spacious hall sans idols where men and women sit separately to meditate. Thousands of pigeons feeding on offerings from devotees greet your arrival. Jain monks and nuns walk barefoot to this Sthanak every year in pilgrimage. To cope with the increasing rush of Jain pilgrims, renovation plans are afoot estimated at around Rs. 30 lakhs. Jainism in Kerala dates back to the third century. Relics of the religion's significant past presence is marked by temples that have survived the onslaught of time and fundamentalism, like the temple in Wyanad, or the Kallil Bhagavati temple in Perumbavoor or the temple in Nagercoil. Jainism is undergoing a revival, even abroad, with more people getting attracted to it by its cardinal principles, like 'live and let live', 'forget and forgive', and even vegetarianism. Even its prayers are not addressed to an individual god but to all those who are an embodiment of all virtues. The Indian Express 14 August 2000 Mahaveer's teachings recalled The teachings of Lord Mahaveer and tenets of Jainism were recalled by speakers at a function organised here (at Chennai) on September 16, to espouse the cause of universal peace. The function was organised as part of the ongoing 2600th birth anniversary celebrations of the Jain monk by the Shri Chandraprabhu Jain Naya Mandir Trust. The speakers stressed the need to preserve the environment and ensure peace not only among humankind, but also between men and animals. Jain Acharyas Nityodaya Sagar Suriji Maharaj and Chandranan Sagar Suriji Maharaj participated in the function in which 'Mahamangalik' was rendered. Speaking on the occasion, Mr. N.

The Hindu 17 September 2000 Rajasthan HC declares Jains as minority In an important pronouncement the Rajasthan High Court has declared Jains as a religious minority community and allowed teaching institutions set up by them to enjoy minority status under Articles 29 and 30 of the constitution. Allowing a writ petition filed by the Vijay Shanti Educational Trust, Mr. Justice Rajesh Balia held that Jains constituted a separate religious community and because of their small population they come under religious minority community. Rejecting the State Government's contention that only after issuance of a Central notification the teaching institutions established by Jains could be provided benefit under Articles 29 and 30 of the Constitution, Mr. Justice Balia said the community cannot be deprived of minority status on this ground. The petitioner trust, a body of Swetambar Jains, told the court that it had set up a dental college and hospital in Udaipur after obtaining permission from the State and Central Governments and the Dental Council of India, and was now seeking minority status for the institution. The State Government asked the trust to apply for the same to the State Minorities Commission which issued it a certificate last year. However, the certificate was withdrawn by the commission on the ground that an inquiry was pending in the matter.

From MLBD Newsletter, November 2000 Page #52 -------------------------------------------------------------------------- ________________ JAIN BHAWAN: ITS AIMS AND OBJECTS JAIN BHAWAN: ITS AIMS AND OBJECTS The establishment of the Jain Bhawan in 1945 in the Burra Bazar area of Calcutta by eminent members of the Jain Community, the Jain Bhawan has kept the stream of Jain philosophy and religion flowing steadily in eastern India for the last over fifty years. The objectives of this institution are the following: 143 1. To establish the greatness of Jainism in the world rationally and to spread its glory in the light of new knowledge. 2. To develope intellectual, moral and literary pursuits in the society. 3. To impart lessons on Jainism among the people of the country. 4. To encourage research on Jain Religion and Philosophy. To achieve these goals, the Jain Bhawan runs the following programmes in various fields. 1. School: To spread the light of education the Bhawan runs a school, the Jain Shikshalaya, which imparts education in accordance with the syllabi prescribed by the West Bengal Board. Moral education forms a necessary part of the curricula followed by the school. It has on its roll about 550 students and 25 teachers. 2. Vocational and Physical Classes: Accepting the demands of the modern times and the need to equip the students to face the world suitably it conducts vocational and physical activity classes. Classes on traditional crafts like tailoring, stitching and embroidery and other fine arts along with Judo, Karate and Yoga are run throughout the year, not just for its own students, but for outsiders as well. They are very popular amongst the ladies of Burra Bazar of Calcutta. 3. Library: "Education and knowledge are at the core of all round development of an individual. Hence the pursuit of these should be the sole aim of life". Keeping this philosophy in mind a library was established on the premises of the Bhawan. With more than 10,000 books on Jainism, its literature and philosophy and about 3,000 rare manuscripts, the library is truly a treasure trove. A list of such books and manuscripts can be obtained from the library. 4. Periodicals and Journals: To keep the members abreast of contemporary thinking in the field of religion the library subscribes to about 100 (hundred) quarterly, monthly and weekly periodicals from different parts of the world. These can be issued to members interested in the study of Jainism. 5. Journals: Realising that there is a need for research on Jainism and that scholarly knowledge needs to be made public, the Bhawan in its role as a research institution brings out three periodicals: Jain Journal in English, 'Titthayara' in Hindi and 'Sramana' in Bengali. In 35 years of its publication, the Jain Journal has carved out a niche for itself in the field and has received universal acclaim. Sramana, the Bengali journal, which is celebrating its twentyseventh anniversary this year, has become a prominent channel for the spread of Page #53 -------------------------------------------------------------------------- ________________ 144 JAIN JOURNAL: Vol-XXXV, No. 3 January 2001 Jain philosophy in Bengal. Both the Journals are edited by a renowned scholar Professor Dr Satya Ranjan Banerjee of Calcutta University. The Jain Journal and Sramana for over twentyseven years have proved that these journals are in great demand for its quality and contents. The Jain Journal is highly acclaimed by foreign scholars. The same can be said about the Hindi journal "Titthayara" which is edited by Mrs Lata Bothra. In April this year it entered its 25th year of publication. Needless to say that these journals have played a key-role in propagating Jain literature and philosophy. Progressive in nature, these have crossed many milestones and are poised to cross many more. 6. Seminars and Symposia : The Bhawan organises seminars and symposia on Jain philosophy, literature and the Jain way of life, from time to time. Eminent scholars, laureates, professors etc. are invited to enlighten the audience with their discourse. Exchange of ideas, news and views are the integral parts of such programmes. 7. Scholarships to researchers : The Bhawan also grants scholarships to the researchers of Jain philosophy apart from the above mentioned academic and scholastic activities. 8. Publications : The Bhawan also publishes books and papers on Jainism and Jain philosophy. Some of its prestigious publications are : The Bhagavati Sutra (in English) Parts 1 to 4 Barsat ki Rat (A Rainy Night) (in Hindi), Panchadarshi (in Hindi) Bangal ka Adi Dharma (Pre-historic religion of Bengal) Prasnottare Jaina-dharma (in Bengali) (Jain religion in questions and answers). Weber's Sacred Literature of the Jains. 9. A Computer Centre : To achieve a self reliance in the field of education, a Computer training centre was opened at the Jain Bhawan in February 1998. This important and welcome step will enable us to establish links with the best educational and cultural organisations of the world. With the help of E-mail, internet and website, we can help propagate Jainism throughout the world. Communications with other similar organisations will enrich our own knowledge. Besides the knowledge of programming and graphics, this computer training will equip our students to shape their tomorrows. 10. Research : It is, in fact, a premiere institution for research in Prakrit and Jainism, and it satisfies the thirst of many researchers. To promote the study of Jainism in this country, the Jain Bhawan runs a research centre and encourages students to do research on any aspects of Jainism. In a society infested with contradictions and violence, the Jain Bhawan acts as a philosopher and guide and shows the right path. Friends, you are now aware of the functions of this prestigious institution and its noble intentions. We, therefore, request you to encourage us heartily in our creative and scholastic endeavours. We hope that you will continue to lend us your generous support as you have done in the past.
