Rm.Shanmugam Chettiar. (June 15,1942 / Aravayal, karaikudi, Tamil Nadu, South India)
The world of Jain
The whole world consists of two entities:
Life and Non-life; both are independent.
Life is the state of pure consciousness.
Non-life is of motion, rest, space, time and
Gross matter, the five being infinite.
Life through Non-life forms all living organisms.
The law of cause and effect is in force.
Injuries breed injuries; abstain from them.
Non-injury is the spirit of Jainism,
Which does not, hence, envisage any God.
