LEADER RESOURCE 3: Jain Symbol

Provided by Elembis.

The Jain Hand symbolizes the Jain Vow of Ahimsa, or nonviolence. The Sanskrit word in the middle of the palm is "ahimsa." The wheel represents the dharma (teachings) of Jainism, through which Jains seek to attain rational perception and ultimately freedom from the cycle of transmigration (reincarnation).
