Economics Of Mahavira ► 04 ► [04.13] Limitation of Individual Ownership and Personal Consumption - Policy for Removing Economic Disparities

Posted: 15.02.2006

If today' s prosperous society follows the committed society of Mahavira's time in respect of consumption, the problem of economic disparity would perhaps get automatically solved.

Anand shravaka alone did not follow this. Five lakh (lakh = a hundred thousand) people followed this throughout their lives.

If today, a similar commune of five lakh people could be formed, it will be an exemplary thing for the whole world. Be it the pollution problem, the poverty problem, the problem of consumption or the production problem, the right and rational solution will emerge.
