As part of the preparations for my PhD fieldwork, I attended the International Summer School for Jains Studies, which took me to Delhi, Jaipur (Rajasthan), and Indore (Madhya Pradesh). (Ahimsa Sthal, Delhi)

I learned about Jainism, the religion of approx. half a per cent of the Indian population, which originates from the 6th c. BCE. A few decades before the Buddha, Mahavira, the last teacher in the series of twenty-four, spread Jain teachings in northern India. (Jain temple in Indore, Madhya Pradesh)
