Path to Inner Peace, The
An in-depth exploration of the Jain karma doctrine and how to apply it to find inner peace.
This book presents the fundamental principles of the Jain karma doctrine through a fictional account of the relationship between a guru and his American student. As the story unfolds, the guru instructs the student on how ‘karmic debt’ is incurred as the result of personal action and how this ‘debt’ can be reduced through behavioral choices. With an emphasis on nonviolent action, Jainism elucidates the path whereby karmic attachment is decreased, leading to inner peace. The Path to Inner Peace serves as an in-depth analysis of which actions lead to karmic attachment, how to avoid karmic attachment and what the consequences of karmic attachment are. The issues of free will versus determinism and good versus evil are also dealt with in detail.

Dr. Subhash Jain’s work is beautifully clear and succinct. It is tremendously helpful as an aid to one's comprehension of Jain concepts, which are often complex and which operate from an ancient and meticulously developed worldview. Moreover, Dr. Jain’s approach is highly practical in its focus. I recommend his work highly. ~ Dr. Jeffery D. Long, Carl W.
