Jain Mantra

Dates and Times: Saturdays 11am – 1pm Pacific Time, September 24 to December 10, 2022 (No classes on November 19 & 26)

This course looks at how Jains, over a period of about 2,000 years, have developed their own mantras in conversation with both Hindus and Buddhists. We will examine the different versions and meanings of the most important Jain mantra, the pañcanamaskāra, and look at how mantras like OṂ HRĪṂ and ARHUṂ have been related to the soul, karmic destruction, and the path to liberation.
