Jainism believes that the universe is everlasting. It has no beginning and no end. On account of the intrinsic properties of its entities or substances, which include the forces of nature, the universe continuously undergoes transformations. There are two two kinds of entities in the universe-living beings and non-living substances.

We Jainas believe that there is no Supreme Being who regulates the events in this universe. There is no divine intervention in the lives of the worldly beings. We Jainas do believe that when a soul becomes free from all bondage of karmas, it becomes pure. Such pure souls are called God (Arihantas and Siddhas). Thus, God is a pure soul. They donot reward or punish us.

We worship Arihantas and Siddhas as ideals for following their virtues. We also get good thoughts and feelings when we visit our temples for prayer and worship. Such prayer and worship lead us towards spiritual advancement.

Namokar Mantra is the biggest reverence mantra.

The teachings of Jain Religion are

Ahimsa - Practice of Non-violence,
Satya - Neither to tell a lie nor cause others to tell
Acauraya - Non-stealing
Brahmacarya - Chastity
Aparigraha - Non- attachment to worldly things and pleasures.

Live and Let Live is the sermon of Bhagwan Mahavir.
