Mahavira studied man and the attitudes of man. He said that men exhibit divergent attitudes: they do not measure everybody with the same yardstick. He classified men in three categories:

  • One having many desires (Mahechha)
  • One having few desires (Alpechha)
  • One having no desires (Ichhajayi)
Men in the first category are those who have too many desires, too many wants. Those in the second category have limited desires and few wants and those in the third have controlled their desires, they have conquered desires.
