  • @Manoj Mehta Rishabhdeva/vrishabhdev/Adinath swami is not the founder of Jainism. Rather he is the First teerthankar of this kaal i.e Hunda Avsarpini Kaal. Jainism is a "AnadiNidhan" religion . No one founded it.

Jainism (Jaina Dharma) is a religion born in India in the 6th century AC. in Vaishali (Bihar) as a heresy to Brahmanism. The creator of Jainism was Mahavira (549-477 AC), contemporary of Buddha, Confucius and Lao-tzu. Jain people believe that Mahavira (the Great Hero) was the last one of the 24 holy men (jina, winners) who lived before him. In 2013 the UNESCO declared the Jain scriptures "SHANTINATHA CHARITHRA" as an interest and a value for humanity, for their contributions to peace, Non-violence and brotherhood. Mahavira's teachings focus on releasing the soul (Jina) of matter and guide it towards a divine consciousness and liberation (Moksha). Jains believe that man is absolutely owner of his destiny. For the Jains, the whole universe is alive, and therefore has a soul. Stones, animals, clouds or sun are part of the universe, and therefore must be respected. "Any living organism deserves respect." For this reason one of the pillars of Jainism is the concept of Non-violence (Ahimsa), a supreme principle. Like the Zoroastrians, thoughts, words and deeds must strictly observe the principle of Non-violence. By practicing Non-violence, historically has led Jain people to dedicate more to business and trade than agriculture (they think that tilling a field can kill many insects) and livestock. Therefore they tend to have a much higher education than the average of Indian people. Jain people are usually considered as extremely dynamics in all aspects of business. Important Jains have participated in the construction of India since independence. The Jain community is strongly organized in charities organizations that support cultural and educational initiatives and are also somewhat like a "business lobbies".
