OBJECTIVE

In spite of the unprecedented advancements in science and technology, the scientists themselves have accepted their limitations with regards to knowledge of ultimate truths. They also agree that the global problems like violence, global warming, disparity etc. have intensified as the consequences of wanton use of technology. On the other hand, the ancient wisdom, manifested in the "darshan" (vision) of the sages and seers, especially the Jain Tirthankars, have deeper vision of ultimate reality which includes Consciousness as well as the physical world. On the basis of this kind of intuitive vision, they have prescribed certain spiritual techniques to mitigate the destructive emotions, giving birth to the problems like violence etc.It is high time, therefore, that integration of science with Jainism should be worked out for evolving a better human society free from the evils like violence etc. In this context, this International Conference on Science and Jain Philosophy has been organized and it is anticipated that deliberations in the conference will bridge the gap in Science and Philosophy through an objective approach with scientific spirit.

It is hoped that as the outcome of this conference, we would be able to pave the way for establishing a non-violent, compassionate, just and ethical society on global scale.

It is found that there is a rich source in the Jain canonical texts for scientific and mathematical research which would go a long way in establishing a peaceful world-order which is free from violence, disparity, injustice and intolerance. The major objective of International Conference on Science and Jain Philosophy is to comprehend the Jain doctrines and practices in the light of present day scientific theories and utilize this comprehensive knowledge in favour of the humanity at large.
