2. QUOTE
Attachment and aversion are the root cause of karma, and karma originates from infatuation. Karma is the root cause of birth and death, and these are said to be a source of misery. None can escape the effect of their own past karma.
- Bhagwan Mahavira
3. JAINISM SAYS...
Q 2: Has Jainism become a “kitchen religion”? Or why is food given so much importance in Jain households?

A 2: First, let’s talk about what is meant by a "kitchen religion". The youth / young adults in America perceive Jainism as a “kitchen religion” when they extensively hear about food in religious context - we can eat this; we can’t eat this; we can eat at this time; we can’t eat at this time, we can’t eat green vegetable on certain days, we can’t eat root vegetables but certain root vegetables are exceptions. And in the midst of all this, the fundamental Jain principles and how to apply these principles in their current environment are not explained.

We want to shed light on Jain values and principles as they apply to this question while keeping the spiritual growth perspective in the forefront:
  • Ahimsa Anuvrat (Vows) of  Laypeople
  • Following the path of Minimum Violence for Healthy Survival
  • Jainism is a Religion of Reflection, not Action
  • Actions done in Mithyatva (Ignorance/Wrong Beliefs) always acquire Pap karma
