  • 19th Jaina Studies Workshop, Jainism and Buddhism
  • The Jains and the Buddhists have distinctive attitudes to religion and knowledge. Their approaches define religion as encompassing all forms of knowledge, including the physical sciences, the humanities and the spiritual journey. Yet, both ancient Indian traditions co-evolved, and mutually influenced each other.
