This episode is about the Jain religion - which has a core principle to strive for causing as less harm as possible for all living. An ancient religion that has existed for more than 5000 years and where life is believed to exist also in, for example, stones, plants, insects and micro-organisms. The Jain community is mainly from India.
What we today call veganism - has in some form been practised within the Jain community for ages. However, still, the Jain community consumes dairy products - but maybe a change will come - since mass consumption and industrialisation makes it difficult to not cause harm to the animals. - Episode 9 - Episode 9
