|Jainism||India||-445 B.C.E.||Vidal, Gore. Creation. New York: Random House (1981); pg. 149.||"I suddenly realized why the twenty-four so-called saviors of the Jains are called makers of the river-crossing. Jains see this world as a rushing river. We are born on one bank, which is the life of the world. But then if we submit ourselves to the crossing-maker, we can pass over to the other side, to relief from pain, even from final release. This spiritual ferryboat is the emblem of purification. "|
|Jainism||India||-445 B.C.E.||Vidal, Gore. Creation. New York: Random House (1981); pg. 170.|| "I got the point. 'You mean the Jains?'
'And the Buddhists. And those who follow Gosala. You must have noticed that the so-called Mahavira and the so-called Buddha are not Aryans. Worst of all, both come from the republics.'... I thought of Gosala and his string, of Mahavira and his perfect remoteness from the world about him. 'I cannot think that these . . . ascetics have the slightest interest in the rise or fall of kingdoms.'
'So they pretend. But had it not been for the Jains, Varanasi would be our city tonight.' "

Then he said something that I did not understand, but Carak did. 'He's mad,' said Caraka. 'And he is a Jain. That's one of our most ancient sects.'
'Are all Jains mad?'
'Quite the contrary. But this one says that he is the maker of the river crossing, and he's not. He can't be. There have only been twenty-three crossing-makers since the beginning of time.'
None of this made the slightest sense to me. 'What is a crossing-maker?' I asked. 'And why is this man naked? And what is that broom for?'
Without permission, the man carefully swept a place for himself on the ground at my feet. Then he sat cross-legged; and murmured prayers.
Caraka was so embarrassed by his countryman that at first he refused to tell me anything... "

'Their religion forbids them to eat anything which is living or was living,' Krishna said happily.
'Wait a minute,' I said. 'That rules out everything. What do they live on?'
'Ahh.' Krishna smiled. 'Good question!' "
