Over the years I have done several paintings portraying Jain Religion (mainly practised in India) Philosophies such as Ahinsa, Aparigrah, Parigrah, Anekantwaad, and Shatt Leshya. These Jain paintings have been done in modern contemporary style, different from the traditional that one sees often in Jain temples. In this painting the philosophy of Aparigrah (????????) has been depicted. It means renouncing, or detaching, or possessing less . This Acrylic-on-board painting shows the 2 possessions of a Digambar Jain Muni (saint). Living totally naked, the two articles are the peacock feather broom for softly removing the insects seen while walking or sitting, and? a water-pot for ablutions.
