The Center for Jain Studies (CJS) at Claremont Lincoln University seeks to further the work of Jain wisdom (dharma) by facilitating and promoting open discourse, innovative scholarship, creative expression, and the practical application of Jain teachings in today’s world. The Center focuses in particular on three central Jain teachings—ahimsa (non-violence or compassion), annekantavada (non-absolutism, or the multiplicity of viewpoints), and aparigraha (non-attachment or non-possession)—and their application to contemporary thought and activity.
