    DescriptionThis book offers a unique look at one of the oldest religions in the world, and how it can guide us to spiritual and intellectual growth. It bridges the gap between Western religious beliefs and Eastern spiritual philosophies. Jainism is India's oldest spiritual tradition, and one of the oldest religions in the entire world. It rejects the notion of a supreme being, and advocates a deep respect for all living things, and the connections they share. "The Jain Path" looks at how perhaps one of the most individually demanding, rational, and radical of all religions is becoming ever more popular with those trying to re-discover a balance and continuity in their lives. This informative look at how the principals of the Jainism tradition - simple living, non-violence, responsibility, and respect for all things - provides readers with all the tools they need for spiritual and intellectual growth in this ever-more confusing world.

    Review quote
    "If you have ever wondered precisely what a 'Jain' is, this is the book for you! If you are interested in developing a peace loving and compassionate nature with a reverence for nature and a moderate and ecological approach to life, this is also the book for you! In just 240 pages, Aidan Rankin explores the beauty of the Jain Path and provides a good glossary into the bargain. This is a well written, immensely informative book." Elizabeth Medler, New Vision "A very fine introduction to the Jain faith, and a reminder of the value of the wisdom traditions in our time. Pertinent, important, points to a truly sustainable future." Network Review "A masterpiece." Dr Atul K Shah, Chief Executive Diverse Ethics Ltd
