From Library Journal:

Tobias, formerly a professor of ecology and the humanities and currently a writer-director-producer of television films (including Ahisma: Non-Violence ), provides an excellent introduction to Jain religion and philosophy as experienced by a Westerner. Tobias is profoundly moved by Jain ecology (harmonious living with nature) in accord with its central principle and practice of ahisma (nonviolence or nonharming), which necessitates strict vegetarianism. Throughout, Tobias's sense that Jainism has something to teach the world at large helps the reader relate to Jainism as currently practiced. Recommended for most libraries.
