Jainism is all about Right Conduct. Right Conduct includes –
4. Sexual restraint,
5. Non-attachment and
6. Non-selfish attitude towards life.
But in my view, all of these conducts or attitudes are under scanner in modern day world or rather I would say young jains are either confused or not able to accept these conducts wholeheartedly.
The reason I am writing this article is to expose the weak part that prevails in todays jains and to what extent it hurts other people. Jain youth, especially girls, are under so much pressure from family that for sake of just enjoying life momentarily flirts and affairs with guys of other religion. Because they know once they are hooked up with certain Jain Boy they won’t be able to enjoy life to the fullest or in other words they would get trapped in traditional Jain rites and rituals.
Few of my friends, who had Jain Girl Friends, has suffered a lot due to this. They enjoy with you completely before marriage and when it comes to talk to the parents about the affair they show their backs giving lame excuses that her family only wants a Jain Boy. And funny part of it is that they don’t even allow guys to atleast talk to their parents and bring a solution to the problem. If you really love someone than atleast you should once bravely say your parents and bring a feasible solution. And if that doesn’t workout in your favor than it’s your destiny. Their selfishness looms when they just stop talking to you one day and wants guy also to not keep any contact with them.
Another lame excuse that they give is that – they wont be able to fit in other environment which is non – jain, they have problem with the food from all of the world, and also sometimes forces their partner to change to Jainism which is the shittier of all.
If you love any person wholeheartedly, just love him / her without any conditions. They have problems even if their partners are liberal enough to allow them to follow their religion and instead try to force their philosophies on others. One should be clear in their own mind what they want – a beautiful life with the person you love or a life where you can follow all your rites and rituals without any problem?? Just be clear what you want in life before playing with others emotions and feelings. It is really really hard for a person to come out of such trauma, when someone ditches without any logical reason.
After seeing all this non-sense, I certainly don’t have any regards for such a religion and people of that religion. Muslims atleast are much better I should say who knows their limitations. We all see this happening in our everyday life still no one dares to voice Jains but it is different when it is Muslim or Christian in the picture. I ask why Jains cant synchronize with the way modern world is changing?? Why they don’t understand their limitations and just stop before playing with feelings of other people?? Why not even a single eye brow raised against such proselytizing techniques which are used in our society??
PLEASE NOTE: THESE STORIES HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH MY PERSONAL LIFE. I URGE COMMENTERS TO SHOW SOME RESPECT TOWARDS SOCIETY AND STOP ABUSING EACH OTHERS. I AGREE SUCH PRACTICES PREVAILS IN EVERY RELIGIONS BUT I DONT SEE ANY REASON TO DO COMPARISON OF VARIOUS RELIGIONS IN HERE. THANKS FOR YOUR UNDERSTANDING.
