During the sixth century BCE, Jainism arose in Northern India. There are around 4 million Jain adherents on the planet today. Jainism discusses how to achieve moksha with no need for external help by developing your individual karma and liberating your soul. Tirthankaras, meaning literally "teacher who guides people on the right path," are the architects of Jain doctrine. As per Jains, there had been 24 Thirthankaras who discovered and preached the path to salvation or enlightenment. Jains do not see teachers as divine embodiments. They claim to be regular beings that meditated and learned the ultimate nature of existence by tranquility and discipline. As a consequence, Tirthankara represents a person's divine presence. Jain sect division The two types of Jain divisions are Digambara and Svetambara. Although they share Jainism's essential goals and precepts, their beliefs on divine realms, monk clothing, female's status, rites, and texts differ. As per Digambaras, females cannot be free unless they take birth as a male. They are absolutely naked and live with no earthly belongings. Svetambaras, on the other hand, believes that both males and females must achieve freedom. Shwetambar Jain saints dress modestly and keep books to read and write with them. In Jainism, kindness and non-violence is a central concept. As per Jains, karma refers to a person's inner state of being, and the spirit should not suffer karma. They consider that people won't be capable of achieving liberation unless all of their karmas have been cleared.
