About this item

Jainism has been a minority religion in India for more than 2000 years, and Barbato argues that the secret of its persistence is a certain type of dialogue that lies at the center of Jain identity. She describes anekantavada as the teaching of plurality, one of the most fundamental teachings of Jainism. By teaching about the many different aspects of reality, she contends, it helps Jains open up and engage themselves with many discourses, while providing them a tool to hold onto their own convictions and to strengthen them on their path to the highest good.
