Jain Principles

JAIN PRINCIPLES WERE PREACHED BY THE TIRTHANKARAS.

LORD MAH�VIRA IS THE TWENTY-FOURTH TIRTHANKARA.

HE ATTAINED KEVALJNAN THROUGH RIGHT KNOWLEDGE, RIGHT FAITH, AND RIGHT CONDUCT.

HE WAS THE LAST TIRTHANKARA TO PREACH THE JAIN PRINCIPLES.

HE TAUGHT US THAT ALL LIVING BEINGS HAVE A SOUL AND ALL SOULS ARE EQUAL.

ALL SOULS ARE INDEPENDENT.

ANY SOUL CAN ATTAIN SALVATION.

WE SHOULD PRACTICE NON-VIOLENCE (AHIMSA) WHICH IS THE MAIN PRINCIPLE.

WE SHOULD LOVE ALL LIVING BEINGS, PLANTS, BUGS, BIRDS, FISH, ANIMALS, CELESTIAL, INFERNAL AND HUMAN BEINGS.

WE SHOULD ALWAYS TELL THE TRUTH.

WE SHOULD NOT TAKE THINGS THAT DON'T BELONG TO US.

WE SHOULD BE CONTENT AND LIMIT OUR NEEDS, DESIRES, AND POSSESSIONS.

WE SHOULD SHARE AND CARE.

WE SHOULD ALWAYS HELP OTHERS.

WE SHOULD ADMIRE VIRTUOUS.
