Welcome to Career Fund!
The main guidelines of Jainism are (1) right belief, (2) right knowledge, and (3) right behavior. And the main life messages are ‘Ahimsa’, ‘Anekantavad’ and ‘Aparigraha’. Inspired by Lord Mahavir, the Father of the Nation Mahatma Gandhi used to say that even violent thoughts are only violence. And it was Gandhiji who brought the British to their knees in a revolutionary but non-violent way.
Just like every religion teaches us many lovely things, similarly we can learn, learn some beautiful things from Jainism. First let’s see 3 truths-
1) Egalitarian (Igalitarian): Jainism is an egalitarian religion, there is basically no caste system in it. It is based on practice, even a non-Jain can practice it and anyone who practices it is called Jain. Jin’s followers is called. (Jin means ‘conqueror over himself’)
2) Logical: In this the emphasis is on logic, not on superstition. Reasons and explanations have been explained in Jain texts. three gems of jainism Two of them say this – (1) Right Philosophy (Right view – i.e. understanding things with your mind and believing with your eyes, avoiding old beliefs and superstitions) and (2) Right knowledge (right knowledge – effort to gain knowledge by dispelling the darkness of ignorance).
3) World Peace: Through Forgive and Forget: When we say I forgive you or apologize to you, we should not say that the other person is wrong or that we are to blame. It is for both of them to forget what happened and start afresh. This is what Jainism teaches.
3 Lessons from Jainism for Personal and Professional Life
1) Principle of Ahimsa: The importance of this fundamental principle of Jainism can be seen in the context of the many types of violence prevalent in the world today. Jainism believes that all violent activities should be abandoned and All religious practices are useless without such commitment to non-violence. It teaches us to save the lives of others, no matter how small in size they are. This is a deep thing because if we follow it sincerely, then our behavior in daily life will become very gentle and friendly. In spite of being in a competitive race, we will not forget the human inside us. Lesson: It will become our nature to deal fair with everyone within the company, because aggression towards anyone will feel wrong.
2) Right Conduct: We have seen two of the three gems of Jainism (right philosophy and right knowledge) and now we come to the third Right character (conduct), Apart from non-violence, the great thing in this is to try to separate oneself from attachment and illusion. Free yourself from any attachment and impure thoughts. Lesson: To achieve good, follow the path of good, not evil.
3) Polytheism: No one person can hold onto the whole truth, because truth is difficult, and has many faces. The ultimate truth cannot be explained in one sentence. If we accept this, then it is clear that the definition of truth can be different for every person. Everyone’s point of view of seeing and understanding the truth can be different. Lesson: It will be easier for us to understand people’s behavior, and our own violence will decrease.
Besides Jainism Six Daily Rituals: (1) To be disciplined, (2) Orderly Synonyms – To remain calm because everything is predetermined and unchangeable, (3) Meditation – to give time to oneself, (4) Self-study – to be an inquisitive reader and (5) Self-control – worldly Teach us to control desires.
