In the galleries exhibited statues 24 Jain teachers. Entrance 5 rupees. Next to the Museum you met acting teacher (as befits a religion, nude) and his disciples.

  • 經過裡頭的解說後終於分清楚耆那教跟佛教的差別了,也更進一步了解耆那教,博物館裡頭有雕刻優美的雕像,雖然部分已糟到破壞,但仍不減吸引人一探究竟的初衷  more »
  • 耆那教的英文為Jainism 曾聽人說耆那教是原始佛教 但在此地獲得的資訊不同 耆那教興起的時間與佛教幾乎同時 他們主張苦修 一天只吃早餐 完全素食 修行者不著衣物 再冷的天氣都如此 博物館的修行者圖片 和寺內尊者像都可證明 耆那教不信神明 尊者稱為JINA 意思是"勝利者" 或意譯為"大雄"(耆那教徒也將佛陀尊為大雄 佛寺的"大雄寶殿"典出於此) 印度國父聖雄甘地受耆那教易影響頗大  more »
