Jainism and the New Spirituality

Jainism and the New Spirituality is an exploration of Jainism, an ancient and relatively little-known faith that is surprisingly relevant for the 21st century. Dr.Parikh explains Jainism and links it to the newly emerging universal spirituality. He suggests that an understanding of new spirituality is essential to deal with current global issues.

Jainism and the New Spirituality offers explanations and assists it’s readers in redefining spirituality for themselves and their communities. The text is valuable reading on spiritual values, world religions, the multi-faith movement, peace, ecology and social justice. JAINA awarded the book its prestigious "Exceptional Contribution Towards the Promotion of Jainism" award at its 2003 Biennial Convention in Cincinnati.

His was the first peace movement, the first environmental movement, the first movement for social justice, and the first movement to recognize the dignity and equality of every living being. His is a story of transformation, one that continues to inspire all who hear it.
