    Understanding the practical perspective isn’t difficult either.

    Almost everything, except for a few rituals and the perfect dietary restrictions can be easily followed.

    Look at the first chapter. The bit about the soul is universal, you can live on mars and still believe in it and follow it. Your belief system is independent of our external circumstances, provided you are firm.

    Even if we are talking about basic aspects of Jainism like Non-Violence, Truth, Non-Stealing, Celibacy and Hoarding. It can be followed more or less anywhere in the western world. Well…. apart from a war torn country like Ukraine. However, if you are looking at anything in particular, drop a message, the community will help you out.
