Jainism in a Global Perspective

Shriprakash Pandey (Editor) Sagarmal Jain (Editor)
Synopsis Present title 'Jainism in a Global Perspective' is a compilation of the papers presented by Jaina Sjaina Scholars, Swamins, Gurus, Nuns, Diplomats, jurists and Social reformers of India as well as abroad, at the historic Parliament of World's Religions held at Chicago from August 28 to September 4, 1993.  It was historic in a sense that after the First Parliament of World's Religions convened exactly a century ago in 1893, it was reconvened to promote the Unity amid diversity.  In these 100 years elapsed, the world has become more complex and problematic.  Keeping it in view the objectives of Second Parliament of World's Religions were extended to promote harmony, interfaith dialogues and universal brotherhood to make the world better and happier.  It is evident from the papers presented at the Parliament of World's Religions that scholars have shared their views on different aspects of Jaina philosophy and religion and have establish that Jaina religion is not a religion of a sect within the confines of its rituals or traditions, but a religion of humanity.  It has a global relevance in the contemporary world with its comprehensive perspective and vision of spreading world-wide the culture and practice of non-violence integrated with the concept of non-attachment and non-absolutist view.
