Age Description: U - Suitable For All
In this episode of Devlok , Devdutt Pattanaik talks about Jainism. Though lesser known than Buddhism, the two are closely related as they both follow the sharaman parampara.Jainism believes in Anekantvada which means ‘plural or diverse thoughts’. Jain dharm believes in the concept of soul which includes two elements jeev and ajeev, where Jeev is soul and ajeev is matter. Our soul Jeev is polluted through matter Ajeev around us, hence it is trapped in the material world. In every generation, there are 24 teerthankars who liberate themselves from this material world and attain complete purity i.e. Moksh. These teerthankars then become the guru or the teacher who come to show the correct path to their disciples in order to liberate their souls as well. There are 24 statues of the teerthankars in Jain mandirs and they all look similar. The reason for their statues to look similar is that their souls have been purified of all the negativity. Devdutt further immerses in to the set of Mahapurusha which are the 24 teerthankars, 12 chakravarti and 27 heroes.
