God, according to Tamil #Jainism, has the following eight qualities.
Stationariness (quality of being neither light nor heavy)
Un disturbable bliss

Under no circumstance the life of living things should be taken away
Lying & deception are bad
Stealing is sinful
Adultery is heinous
One should be content with just the necessaries of life and no more.
One peculiarity regarding Kalingattuparani, is that it is perhaps the only work written by the Jains on things pertaining to war.
