Temple with gold


Temple with gold

This is a trample near Swargate.
This is a temple for Jainism. It is little bit different form Hinduism. I would rather say Jain temples are much more decorated then other.

Jainism is a old region and have around 4,2 million followers. They aim of life is to achieve liberation of the soul. The way to achieve the goal is to live a life of harmlessness and renunciation.

I have been leaving with a Jain family, I can not say there was any big different between that family and a Hindu family. Both believes in karma, form my point of view had more then one god. They have temples, also small temples in the houses. Biggest different was the food habits. Jain family was pure vegetarian, while the Hindu family had chicken twice in the month. Fore sure they did celibate little different festivals, but both celebrated the main festivals.

To read about Jainism I recommend: http://www.bbc.co.uk/religion/religions/jainism/. Very interesting to read about, but if I would write about Jainism I think it will be a essay.
