I've always had a sneaky admiration for Jainism; especially their attitude towards all living creatures.
This may sound odd for a devoted atheist, carnivore, wasp/slug killer, but it's their attitude towards even the tiniest of insects that appeals to me.
On almost a daily basis I rescue insects from the pool. Usually I fish them out with my bare hand, hoping that they will recognise my kindness and not sting me. As of today they have all shown gratitude and NOT stung me, but I quite expect that one day one will (but not out of malice).
However, my application to enrol as a Jain would, no doubt, be instantly rejected, as I do swat horse flies, wasps, and hornets; something I wouldn't do if they left me alone. If Jainism contained a codicil that allowed slug and black fly eradication, as well as turning a blind-eye to wasp/hornet/cabbage white butterfly killing, then I might just pass the test.
The illustration above is the symbol of the united Jain sects; it was only recently agreed upon, in 1974. The swastika is the most important Jain symbol, it represents peace and well-being; the hand and wheel represents non-violence. Two Jainism ideals that we should all adopt, although I wouldn't recommend brandishing the swastika; a few may not understand..
