Question description

I need a response to this:

  1. First, (a) relate the story of the blind people who are asked to describe an elephant, and explain how the story may be used to illustrate Jain ideals; next, (b) describe some of the typical practices of Jain laypeople, and explain how these principles affect decisions about one’s occupation and other activities.
Each person who touched the elephant described it in his own perception of the reality that he was living.  They all in fact touched the elephant but in different part of the body therefore each one of them had a perception different than the other but all were touching the same object but not in the same place.  The principles of Jainism teaches that human are imperfect but that through a careful control of our senses and thoughts, perfection, freedom and happines can be attained.  If one does a good deed a good gift will be returned to that person; on the other hand any wrong doing of the person  bring him some of the same conditions.  These beliefs are of a high standard and of ethical values.
