Must watch films for Jains in the 21st century.
More than 2500 years old, Jainism is still one of the most powerful philosophical-spiritual worldviews in the world. It is an in-depth inquiry into the roots of violence as it opens up deep questions such as anekantvad, asteya, aparigraha. These conceptual frameworks challenge mainstream understandings around monoculture, ownership, power, wealth, etc. They are critical to opening up our imaginations and re-imagining our global exploitative and dysfunctional systems.
What makes Jainism particularly appealing is that it is not just an abstract set of principles. …

There is a famous saying, “No one is going to give you the education you need to overthrow them.” I see this book by Marina Pechlivanis from Brazil as an important kick-start towards individual and collective liberation from the polarising and paralysing mindsets that shackle us today.

Many billions of people have recently had their first, conscious…
