Here is a dose of daily religion from A to Z.
Today’s religious topic is as follows:
”Anekantavada”, literally the “doctrine of non-onesidedness,” a basic Jain (see JAINISM) ontological assumption that recognizes that any entity is at once enduring, but also undergoes change that is both constant and inevitable. This doctrine states that all entities have three aspects: substance (dravya), quality (guna), and mode (paryaya). The substance serves as a substratum for multiple qualities which must be understood as constantly undergoing modification. Thus, any entity has an abiding, continuous nature, but its qualities are in a state of constant flux.
