Followers of Jainism believe that all living beings, from animals to plants to even the microbes have souls, and theoretically, every soul has the potential to achieve nirvana. Jain traditions feature the ultimate serenity and you would explore life in a new way. According to Jain doctrine, Jainism has always been in existence, and will exist forever. Jains do not believe in a creator god, and do not worship any specific being, admiring and aspiring to be like a liberated soul that has acquired nirvana. Adinath chalisa is a significant part of their prayer.
Karmas in Jainism are the reasons for suffering in this world, not as a punishment or judgment, but the natural consequences of words, thoughts, and actions, whether negative or positive.
Swastika signifies a different meaning in Jainism. The four dots mean the four states or gatis of existence: heavenly beings, humans, animals/plants/etc, and hellish beings. Throughout the cycle of birth and death, any soul can pass through any of these four states, and all are temporary states of being.
Jain Food restrictions
Jains maintain certain dietary restrictions. They follow strict vegetarianism; some do not eat root vegetables, mushrooms, honey, and unfiltered water. Though, dairy products are admissible, many Jains prefer veganism because of the modern factory farming practices.
