Life Force: The World of Jainism
Price:
$20.00
by Michael Tobias
Details:

Outside India, little is known of Jainism, one of the oldest religions in the world; a gentle faith whose ancient precepts have always nurtured an ecological way of life, and which numbers today nearly ten million adherents. At the root of Jainism's compassionate philosophy is the practice of ahimsa, meaning non-violence, an approach to the world that greatly influenced Mahatma Gandhi. Today, with the earth's environment and everyone of its species under constant siege, Jainism has more of a role to play than ever before.
In this accessible and thought-provoking portrait of a religion, the Jain antidotes to human violence and environmental abuse come elegantly and persuasively to light.
A former professor of Environmental Studies and the Humanities at Dartmouth College, Michael Tobias is the author of thirty books, most notably Deep Ecology, Voice of the Planet and A Vision of Nature. He is also the writer, director and producer of more than one hundred films for television that have been broadcast on major networks throughout the world.
