Once in a Lifetime Pilgrimage to produce JAIN ENLIGHTENMENT - A Way of Life

Working for over three years researching and developing the film project, Global Cultural Diversity Films film team have become very passionate on completing the post-production of "JAIN ENLIGHTENMENT - A Way of Life."

From early research, the filmmakers discovered the uniqueness of the world's oldest civilization. Jain Dharma dates back beyond 5,000 years as a indepedent scientific philosophy. It presents "a way of life" that follows basic principles presented in Jain scriptures. All teachings follows a highly scientific philosophy where the concept of god incarnate lies within every living soul, the purest god form and is capable to achieving "moksha," another word for nirvana. Nothing is blind faith.

For Jains all life forms posses a soul and all souls are basically equal, to be treated with respect, compassion and love.

You may ask: why is it so important to produce this film ? The reason is Jain Dharma offers solutions ... simple answers ... to the state of the world today - which is filled with devastating violence, mericless terrorism, unimaginable natural devastations, mental, and physical turmoils of the mind, body and soul.

In the last millennium, Mahatma Gandhi, Martin Luther King, Jr. and Nelson Mendala liberated their people and countries with one fraction of Jain cosmic philosophy - the principle of Ahimsa (Non-Violence).

These historical leaders learned that violence is committed in three ways: thoughts, words and deeds of action. All impure thoughts need forgiveness. Violent words leave permanent scars in the heart and mind of others. All acts of Ego involve anger, fear, deceit and greed. All thoughts are the root cause of words and actions, and violent thoughts may or may not result in violent physical actions, but they damage the soul.

Special attention on these activities are the religious activities of Jain philosophy and help human beings to get rid of vices, of inner and outer turmoils and offer peace and harmony.

Jains live by three major principles: Ahimsa (Non-Violence); Anekantavada (Non-Absolutism or plauralistic view points) and Aparigraha (Non-Possessiveness).
