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. This painting represents the 3 A’s of Jain philosophy to be practised in daily life. 1st A for Ahinsa meaning non violence. The 2nd A for Aparigrah meaning less possessive instinct. And the 3rd A for Anekantwaad, meaning respect for pluralism for peaceful co-existence.
