JainReligion

Jainism traditionally known as Jain Dharma is one of the ancient religions of India dating back to almost 3500-3000 BCE. The followers of the sect are commonly known as Jains, a word derived from the Sanskrit word “jina” (victor). It connotes the path of victory in crossing over life’s stream of rebirths through an ethical and spiritual life. The history can be traced through a succession of twenty-four teachers known as “tirthankaras”. Jains believe that Jainism is an eternal “dharma” with the tirthankaras guiding every cycle of Jain cosmology.
