Anekāntavāda And Syādvāda: University Of Ahiṁsā And Anekānta

Published: 02.07.2012

As a matter of fact, Syādvāda logic saturated with cooling principle of Ahiṁsā is applicable to solve every problem of humanity and it can be applied in order to end the present crisis of the world. Peace is something which the people of the world eagerly want, but which they do not know how to secure. Fear and ignorance are the causes which kindle that flame of hatred in man's heart and fractions cause war. Jainism provides two remedies for it which are Ahiṁsā and Anekānta. The nations of today would do good to humanity if they acquire the Right Knowledge in the light of Syādvāda logic, which enlightens men about the apparent difference and reconciles them under the garb of spirituality. This would lead the nations to observe Ahiṁsā and make them aware of the real kinship of all souls. Then and then alone the world will abound with whole men; who will eagerly support the principle of Pañca Śīla in international matters.

Dr. Kalidas Nag, a veteran advocate of Ahiṁsā and world peace, realised the importance of the teaching of Ahimsā and Anekānta and moved the first Conference of Ahimsā held at Indore under the auspicious of the world Jain Mission ten years ago, to adopt the resolution for the establishment of a University of Non-Violence. He asserts again the same demand when he writes: "And now that peace is again threatened by another disastrous global war, we may seek world co-operation in the cause of Ahimsā. The finest monument to the memory of the architect of Indian freedom would be a University of Non-violence maintained by the University Grants Commission and supported by the Gāndhī Smārak Nidhi. It would benefit not only India and Asia but the whole world hankering after peace and security, both denied us by our exploiting economics and bellicose politics. Both these disruptive forces could be controlled, if we could plan a broad humanistic education with non-possessiveness (aparigrha) and Non-violence (under the right knowledge of Anekānta) as guiding principles. May the world listen to the eternal Voice of India. Ahimsā Paramo Dharmaḥ (Non-violence is the supreme virtue)."
