      Sherry Fohr - Jainism A Guide for the Perplexed Paul Dundas - The Jains (The best book to read if you're only going to read one) Jainism in Indian History – History Study Material & Notes In the sixth century BC, India witnessed the rise of two new religions – Jainism and Buddhism. The primary reason for the rise of these religions was the religious unrest at that time in the country.

      Jainism is an Indian religion that emphasizes complete non-violence and asceticism. Followers of Jainism are called Jains, and there are about 4 million worldwide. Jainism emerged in 6th-century BCE India, the same time Buddhism was developing. The faith is named for the jinas, spiritual conquerors who have achieved liberation and nts: 4 million. These Sutras are collectively known as Agams or Agam Sutras, the sacred books of the Jain religion. Hence, the Jain religion does not have one sacred book like the Bible or Koran, but it has many books compiled by several Gandharas and Srut-kevalis. Agam literature is also divided into two groups: Ang-agams or Ang-pravista-agams.

    Jain Ramayana was written by Acharya " RAVISHEN" in the book " PADAMPURAN " approx. years ago. The book was written in sanskrit. What is the history/lineage of Acharya Ravishen? Jainism, dating back to the 6th century B.C.E. in India, is a syncretistic tradition with many similarities to Hinduism and Buddhism.
