Anuvrat and Environment

Jainism: A Moral Compass for Spiritual Entrepreneuship

  • Nonviolence (Ahimsa)
  • Nonabsolutism (Anekanta)
    "multiplicity of perspectives"-*? central belief
  • Nonposessiveness (Aparigraha)


  • Jainism offers us a healthy and practical framework to:
    • create harmonious results and relationships
    • strengthen ethics in business and society
    • produce widespread benefits for people and planet
    • discourage greed and desires for material objects

Jainism can produce wise leaders and citizens whose decisions are grounded in humanity and humility

Self Responsibility: “The Three R’s”

We each begin our childhood by learning:

  • Reading
  • (W)riting
  • (A)rithmetic

As we grow up, Jain principles build this learning into leadership:

  • Reflection
  • Renewal
  • Responsibility

My Personal Beliefs

  1. “No one goes up by putting others down.”
  2. No challenge ahead of you is greater than the force behind you (the force is Jain values).
  3. Nobody can harm you without your permission.
  4. To Forgive is good
    To Forget is better, and
    To move forward is the best
  5. To the world you may be one person, but to a person you may be the world. (Start with yourself)
  6. When your shadow becomes longer than your height, remember the sun is about to set. (The shadow is your EGO)
  7. Newton’s Third Law of Motion: “To every action there is an equal and opposite reaction.”
  • My law of “E-MOTION”:
    “To every action there is an equal and opposite delayed reaction.”
    The delay of a positive reaction can be extended
    by humanity, humility and honesty

“Many people get advice…
but few benefit from it.”
