Jain Temple Online
Jainism is one of the oldest religions that originated in India.
Jains believe that every soul is divine and has the potential to achieve
God-consciousness. Any soul which has conquered its own inner enemies and
achieved the state of supreme being is called jina. Jainism is the path
to achieve this state. Jainism is often referred to as Jain Dharma or
Shraman Dharma or the religion of Nirgantha or religion of "Vratyas"
by ancient texts. Jainism encourages spiritual development through reliance on
and cultivation of one's own personal wisdom and self-control. The goal of
jainism is to realize the soul's true nature. "Samyak darshan gyan charitrani

India is bestowed with the blessings of the diverse religious faiths. Jainism is one of them, Jain Tirthankars - religious preachers spread the message of peace, non violence, love and enlightenment all over the world. The core of this great religion and its preaching is evident in the cave temples, in the studied molded stones and in the numerous illustrated manuscripts. It is this teaching that has attracted and moulded the sentiments of millions of people across the nation as well as the world.
Jains believe that every human is responsible for his/her actions and
all living beings have an eternal soul, jīva. Jains believe all souls are equal
because they all possess the potential of being liberated and attaining
moksha. Tirthankaras are role models only because they have attained
moksha. Jains insist that we live, think and act respectfully and honor the
spiritual nature of all life. Jains view God as the unchanging traits of
the pure soul of each living being, described as Infinite Knowledge, Perception,
Consciousness, and Happiness (Ananta Jnāna, Ananta Darshana, Ananta Cāritra and
Ananta Sukha). Jains do not believe in an omnipotent supreme being, creator or
manager, but rather in an eternal universe governed by natural laws.
