Description
About the Book

Tainism is one of the ancient J religions of India and an integral part of Indian culture. Lord Mahavira was the twenty-fourth Tirthankara of this religion. His sermons have been extensively documented in the Jain Agamas. His powerful teachings shed light on the philosophy of Jainism as well as on the moral and spiritual values for everyday life. His teachings about compassion and non-violence can be a major driving force in the present times. In today's world, which is ruled by the hunger for power and possessiveness, Mahavira's teachings need to be spread far and wide so that human beings may be inspired with humanity and humane values once again.

In this handy book 'Motivating Thoughts of Mahavira', Dulichand Jain presents a selection of some of the finest aphorisms from the ancient Jaina texts. For easy comprehension, he has divided the sutras into topics, such as knowledge and conduct, conquest of passions, doctrine of karma, reflection and intuition, learning, meditation and righteousness. He has given a simple title for every single aphorism along with the reference number. It’s simple and lucid presentation will make it useful for the laypersons, students as well as scholars.

Fantastic! Thank You for amazing service and fast replies!
Sonia, Sweden
I’ve started receiving many of the books I’ve ordered and every single one of them (thus far) has been fantastic - both the books themselves, and the execution of the shipping. Safe to say I’ll be ordering many more books from your website :)

I received the kaftan today via FedEx. Your care in sending the order, packaging and methods, are exquisite. You have dressed my body in comfort and fashion for my constrained quarantine in the several kaftans ordered in the last 6 months. And I gifted my sister with one of the orders. So pleased to have made a connection with you.
