The Jain’s Death: A Graphic Web Novella

Posted on January 10, 2007


Easily the best 10 minutes I have spent in the recent past! The art and the story are by Patrick Farley. The story has little nuggets of Jain wisdom. I loved it.

Please let me know if you did too. Sometimes, writing on this blog seems like a act in solitude – with no one to see a painting, the paint is wasted,

    Wow, That’s one of the most awesome beautiful stories I have ever read. Jainism is a mostly unknown religion here in the West and certainly misunderstood, yet this comic tale shows quite clearly the foundation of Jainism is in compassion and love, not just for our fellow humans but for all the children of the mother. It certainly is a very moving story and perhaps even predicts a probable future for womb man kind. Thanks for bring this jewel of enlightenment and eastern mystery into my mundane reality.

    You are most welcome, Starhawk – I am glad at least one other person enjoyed it as much as I did :)

    hi, just watching a tv program ‘around the world in 80 faiths’. It just covered jainism, and I was reminded of an online comic i read and loved, did a search for ‘the jains death’ and found myself here.

    I think the story is very good, I would love to be a Jain but it is a very difficult thing to practise.

    such a shame, the story is no longer being hosted. e-sheep no longer seems functioning.
