Fundamental Features of Jainism
The Law of Karma Operating:
The adage, as you sow, so you reap
Liberated souls live here
There are sixteen heavens.
On the upper portion of the Cosmos
in these heavens Dev-Indra-pious souls live there in.
It is a fundamental fact, accepted and experienced by all that all living beings in this
world are unhappy and everybody wants to get rid of this unhappiness.
They also make attempts to do so, but since they do not know the
correct path to the state of perfect happiness, all their attempts
are in vain. The basic reason is that the living beings do not
know the real path of liberation. Liberation means
complete freedom from grief and pain.
