Jainism: the world of conquerors, Volume 1
These two volumes provide an intimate vantage view of what the author calls the world of conquerors a world of inner and outer space waiting to be conquered not by warlike weapons unleashed by greed, malice, domination, violence and exploitation but by peaceful conquerors following principles and practice of Right Knowledge, Right Faith, and Right Austerities, based on reverence for life, compassion, non-violence, equanimity and a sense of mutual interdependence. From the Foreword by His Excellency Dr L. M. Singhvi, formerly High Commissioner for India
