Eastern Religions

Jains don't believe in violence but how do they get more members to join their religion? Do they just think people should voluntarily want to become a Jain?

It's also interesting to read about the different fasts religions do because my religion does it differently and there are so many different fasts.

They believe in the Right Faith, the Right Knowledge, and the Right Conduct.

After reading about karma I learned there were eight different types of karma.

"Digambaras believe that women cannot achieve liberation without first being reborn as a man." I thought that this was wrong because it's basically saying that a women can't be equal until she experiences it like a man. It's unfair that she has to be similar to a male to be treated like him. The only reason it makes sense is because they say women can't live naked.
