History of Jainism :-

Jainism doesn't have a single founder. The truth has been revealed at different times by a tirthankara, which means a teacher who 'makes a ford' i.e. shows the way.

#Jainism Image
As great omniscient teachers, Tirthankaras accomplished the highest spiritual goal of existence and then teach others how to achieve it. In what Jains call the 'present age' there have been 24 tirthankaras ImageImage
A Tirthankar is not an incarnation of the God. He is an ordinary soul that is born as a human and attains the states of a Tirthankar as a result of intense practices of penance, equanimity and meditation. As such, the Tirthankar is not defined as an Avatar

It is one among four Tithis on which one doesn’t even need to look at muhurta. It is celebrated on Tritiya tithi of Shukla Paksha in the month of Vaisakh. It is the day of Aboojh Muhurta.
#SanatanaDharma #Hinduism Image
Thus, one can perform auspicious events - Marriage, Grih-Pravesh, or purchase land, Clothes, Jewellery, and other valuables. On this day, people purchase gold as it is believed that charity done on this day brings good luck and success.

Gujarat Freedom of Religion Act 2003 and its implication on Jainism

In 2003, the Gujarat state assembly (under the chief minsitership of Narendra Modi) passed the controversial "Freedom Of Religion" bill, which clubbed Jainism and Buddhism as denominations of Hinduism.

The move was protested by the Jain, Buddhist, and Christian communities.
The National Commission for Minorities termed this to be a violation of its 1993 notification classifying Buddhists as a minority community.

The Jains were not considered as a minority at that time.

Gujarat Governor was forced to withhold his assent & the bill was withdrawn.

Jwalamalini or Jvālāmālinī

Yakshini (guardian spirit) of the Eighth Tirthankara, Shri Bhagwan Chandraprabhu in Jainism; was one of most widely invoked Yakshinis in Karnataka during early medieval era.

Jwālā refers to glow of fire, mālinī implies one who bears it's garlands. Image
A famous historical text Jwalamalini Kalpa was composed by Jain Acharya Indranandi in 939 AD in Manyakheta during Rashtrakuta Krishnaraj's rule. It was inspired by an older & complex text of Helacharya before him, who had vanquished a Brahma-Rakshasa by invoking Jwalamalini. Image
Jwalamalini also appears in various Puranas, the Vayu Purana associates her with Shiva, the Brahmanda Purana and the Matsya Purana associate her with Shakti.

जैन धर्म में 18 प्रकार के पाप बताए गए हैं :
1. प्राणातिपात : हिंसा , कोई भी जीव के प्राण को घात करना , पीड़ा देना , मानसिक त्रास देना वो द्रव्य हिंसा है। रागादि भाव के साथ आत्मगुण को दबाना या घात करना वो भाव हिंसा है।

2. मृषावाद : असत्य बोलना , छल , कपट , मान और माया
माया अर्थात बाहर कुछ मन मे कुछ और। धन , धान्य के परिवार के लाभ या लोभ के कारण असत्य वचन बोलना। झूठी साक्षी देना।

3. अदत्तादान : अदत्त - चोरी , आदान लेना। चोरी से छुपा के लेना। पूछे बिना लेना। राज्य के कर आदि छुपाना वो भी चोरी है। एक परमाणु जितना भी चोरी करना भी अदत्तादान है।
4. मैथुन : विषयभोग , काम वासना , इन्द्रियों का असंयम , पांचेय इन्द्रियों के भोगों की लोलुपता , विजातीय की भोग वासना।

5. परिग्रह : धन धान्यादि संग्रह करके उसमें मान, दिखावा, ममत्व करना। आवश्यक संग्रह करके भी ज्यादा की तृष्णा करना। जितना भी है उसके उपयोग में नियंत्रण नही रखना।

Every Jain need to know this,

Why do Jains celebrate next day of Deepavali as a starting of New Year ?

Read the thread.
This tradition goes back to the times of Shree Aadinath. As per existing evidences, this tradition first started in Jains. We Jains, named the Samvatsara since the Nirvana of Shree Aadinath.
As on this day of Shree Aadinath attaining Nirvana, his Samavasarana (the three-layered Dev-made building where all Tirthankars give sermons) was dissolved. The next day is called Samvatsara or starting of an Era of the spiritual kingdom of him after he attained Nirvana.
