Anekant Siddhanta is the lifeblood for religious tolerance says Jain scholar

Lucknow: The 33rd Foundation Day of Jain Vidya Shodh Sansthan (Department of Culture, U.P.), Lucknow began with an invocation at the International Buddhist Institute Auditorium.

Promoting the topic in a scholarly seminar on the relevance of Anekant Siddhanta, Prof. (Dr.) Abhay Kumar Jain said that Anekant Siddhant makes it universal by coordinating conflicting ideologies. Anekant ends religious inertia and unites different religious ideologies.

It binds in a thread easily, due to which the possibilities of invasion and retaliation are eliminated. At present, different nations of the world are considering their ideas as the best, that is why the world is infested with the horrors of war. History is the witness that war ends with ideological coordination. The solution of the war between Ukraine and Russia is possible with the Anekant Siddhanta propounded by Lord Mahavira. Anekant Siddhanta is the lifeblood for religious tolerance.

Chief speaker Prof. Vijay Kumar said that Anekant is the unique principle of Jainism. On the one hand, it is helpful in understanding the nature of religion, on the other hand, it ends mutual disharmony. Etah’s scholar Dr. Yogesh Chandra Jain said that it is necessary to be pluralistic to end terrorism. Scholar of Hastinapur, Dr. Jeevan Prakash told that Anekant is the contribution of presentation of Sarvodayi ideology. Agra’s scholar poet Gantantra ‘Ajasvi’ gives a message of infinite love and compassion. Local Mrs. Geeta Jain, Sanjeev Kumar Nahar and Prof. Pawan Aggarwal, while expressing his views, said that Anekant Siddhanta is relevant to end religious and practical differences.

Jain Mahila Mandal, Gomtinagar staged Shrut Devta ki Jai short play under the direction of Dr. Raka Jain. Teerthankar Panchkalyanak exhibition was organized by Jain Mahila Mandal Ashiana. The musicians of Sangeet Natak Academy tied the knot by presenting Bhagwan Mahavir Bhajans. Art exhibition on Lord Mahavira and Buddha by Lalit Kala Akademi was appreciated by the audience.
