FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions)

1. Give a brief description of Jainism.

Vardhamana Mahavira was the last and 24th Tirthankara of the Jainas. He was the Kshatriya prince of the Lichchavis, a community that was part of the Vajji sangha. He left home at the age of 30 and went to live in the hills. He lived a rough and solitary life for 12 years at the end of which he achieved enlightenment. He taught a clear doctrine: men and women who wanted to discover the truth had to leave their homes. They must strictly obey the laws of ahimsa.

Mahavira disciples, known as Jainas, had to lead very simple lives. They had to be completely honest, and they were particularly asked not to loot. They had to practise celibacy, too. And the men had to give it all up, including their clothing.

2. Explain the three levels of Panchayat.

In rural areas, Gram Panchayat is the first level or level of democratic government. The Panch and the Gram Panchayat-answered to the Gram Sabha-are the members of the Gram Sabha who elected them. The principle of citizens engaging in the Panchayati Raj system applies to two other stages, where the Block level is one of them, called the Janpad Panchayat or the Panchayat Samiti, with several Gram Panchayats under it. Above the Panchayat Samiti is the Panchayat district or the Zila Parishad, which is planning creation at the district level.
