Jainism, Ethics, and Ecology

Christopher Key Chapple
Issued Date: 11 May 2010

Abstract


Jainism advocates the practice of nonviolence (ahimsa), combining a strict ascetic practice with a view that life pervades all beings, including elements that are considered inert in other worldviews. Many Jainas are by translating this interpretation of the world into the broader arena of ecological ethics.
