At its heart lies the principle of Ahiṃsā, advocating for a sense of harmony and respect for the delicate balance of existence. As a part of that, through meditation, self-awareness, and ethical conduct, Jain ascetics strive to embody the principles of the five “great vows” (Mahāvratas) and the doctrine of Tri-Ratna not only in their actions but also in their thoughts and intentions, encouraging individuals to cultivate empathy &amp; mindfulness in their interactions with all living creatures, by fostering a harmonious existence for both humans and the natural world. Thus, they acknowledge all creation as being an equal part of the divinity of the universe. This article reflects the same. Here the author specifically tried to focus more on Jain beliefs &amp; principles and how they encapsulate a holistic worldview that promotes generosity, environmental consciousness, and a profound sense of dignity, which ultimately upholds the intrinsic worth of every life form, whether visible or microscopic.</em></p> <p> </p> 2024-03-14T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Indian Journal of Ethics, Logic and Philosophy Ethics of Bhagavad Gita 2023-12-16T07:36:27+00:00 Ms. Chunchuni Borah <p><em>The Bhagavad Gita is the most popular and sacred scripture of Hinduism. It is not only a religious book of the Hindu religion but also a common property for all the human beings of the world where we can find solutions to every problem of our lives. Ethics has great importance in every step of our life. Ethics means a code of conduct. Ethics make us responsible or make us aware of our actions. The central theme of the Bhagavad Gita is ethics. In the Bhagavad Gita ethics is reflected in concepts like svabhava, svadharma and niskama karma. In this paper, the author will discuss the Niskama karma which means desireless action or having no desire for the fruit of action. The Bhagavad Gita, which is a part of the Mahabharata, is purely a spiritual document that encompasses everything connected with human beings and life on earth and it helps humanity to attain the goal of self-realization and enlightenment. </em></p> 2023-12-21T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Indian Journal of Ethics, Logic and Philosophy Indigenous Cultural Heritage of Tripura: Issues and Challenges 2023-11-02T02:59:03+00:00 Mr. Gobinda Bhattacharjee <p><em>The indigenous groups of Tripura have their respective arts and cultures or folklores or folktales which are initially oral and passed down to the younger generations by the senior members from generation to generation. Due to the modernization and influx of migrated people from the neighbouring countries to Tripura, threats have been created among the tribal communities for maintaining their unique identity and traditional cultures. Their enriched culture is getting mix-up and they are wondering how to save their culture for the next generations. The present study discusses the challenges and issues faced by tribal communities to maintain their opulent arts and culture by keeping in view the present situation of Tripura. To provide a platform where the tribal communities can preserve their arts and cultures or folklores, one model, namely "Indigenous Cultural Heritage of Tripura", is proposed which might preserve their unique traditional arts and cultures or folktales. </em></p> 2023-11-09T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Indian Journal of Ethics, Logic and Philosophy Revealed Preference in Decision-Making: Some Conceptual Issues 2023-12-16T06:56:14+00:00 Dr. Somdeb Lahiri <p><em>We show that a common and popular argument against two weaker versions of the Weak Axiom of Revealed Preference arises due to incorrect framing of the decision-making problem by the decision analyst. We compare the implications of the Weak Axiom of Revealed Preference with its two weaker versions and show that a violation of any of the two axioms discussed here would manifest itself in a kind of inconsistency in the behaviour of the decision maker that leads to the decision maker’s bankruptcy.</em></p> 2023-12-20T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Indian Journal of Ethics, Logic and Philosophy The Emergence of Everything: How the World Became Complex- A Book Review 2023-10-03T02:31:16+00:00 Dr. Ganesh Bharate <p><em>Why is there something rather than nothing is a vexed question. Can we make sense of the world around us in its entirety is a question after that. Science has moved away from the why and ought questions to the how questions i.e. to understand the process. Can the process of understanding how help us answer the why questions? Non-academically in the quest of the author to make meaning of everything around him and academically for his thesis work, he stumbled upon this magnificent work by the American biophysicist who was the Robinson Professor of Biology and Natural Philosophy at George Mason University. Here, the author urges the readers to join him in this quest and to know his understanding of the book: The Emergence of Everything – How the World Became Complex.</em></p> 2023-12-21T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Indian Journal of Ethics, Logic and Philosophy
