Jainism recognizes two fundamental principles – the jivatattva (living objects) and the ajivatattva (non-living objects). These two principles come into contact with one another and forge certain energies that bring forth birth, various experiences of life, and death.

There is a five-fold ethical code in Jainism:

Ahimsa – non-violence Satya – truth Asteya – non-stealing Brahmacharya – celibacy Aparigraha – non-acceptance of gifts
