Principles of Jainism

Who we are?

We are a Not-For-Profit organisation registered with the government of Australia with the aim to promote the principles of "Jainism". Established in the year 2008 in the city of Melbourne, the focus of this committee is to integrate the ancient beliefs of Jainism into the daily lives of all its ardent followers. The committee conveys the Jain teachings of a life of doing no harm to anyone or anything, as well as renouncing all material belongings as a way to attaining the ultimate goal of nirvana, or eternal peace.

Today, thousands of Universities and research laboratories, innumerable scientists and researchers are conducting in depth studies on the Jain Aagam Shaastras. The principles and philosophies of Jain Darshan have a global appeal today, and are undoubtedly the need of the hour.

Here are a few eminent personalities from history who have been greatly influenced by the principles of Jainism and have expressed their views regarding the same.

Albert Einstein
Theoretical physicist

“The external mystery of the world is its intelligibility. True religion fastens to this element of intelligibility and creates a system of thought and action which leads to true harmony and bliss. And it is indeed so with Jainism.”

L. P. Tessetori, Italy
Italian Indologist and linguist

“Jainism is of very high order. Its important teachings are based upon science. The more the scientific knowledge advances the more those Jain teachings will be proven.”

Mahatma Gandhi
Indian activist

“I say with conviction that the doctrine for which the name of Lord Mahavira is glorified nowadays is the doctrine of Ahimsa. If anyone has practiced to the fullest extent and has propagated most the doctrine of Ahimsa, it was Lord Mahavira. ”

Swami Vivekananda
Indian monk

The Jains do not depend upon God; but the whole force of their religion is directed to the great central truth in every religion, to evolve a God out of man. They have not seen the Father, but they have seen the Son. And he that hath seen the Son hath seen the Father also.”
