Book Title:The Scientific Foundations of Jainism
Author(s):Mardia, K V
Publisher Name:Motilal Banarsidass
Place of Publication:Delhi
Date of Publication:1996
Annotation:After providing a short explanation of Jainism drawn extensively from Padmanab Jaini’s, The Jaina Path of Purification, Mardia categorizes Jain practice into four axioms that ideally lead to liberation of the soul from entanglement in karmic matter. The remainder of the book explains the mechanism of liberation as understood by Jains in terms of modern science, and more specifically, atomic physics. He introduces the term “karmons” and includes many diagrams, flow charts, and models that describe how karmic bondage leads human beings through different states of existence.
