5. The Three Jewels of Jainism


The three jewels of Jainism, also known as three gems, constitute the core practice of Jainism for both the ascetics and the laity. The three jewels which are common for both groups are cultivation of
1. Right Perception (Samyak Darshan),
2. Right Knowledge (Samyak Gyan) and
3. Right Conduct (Samyak Charitra). While the laity is given some freedom to practice the law, no lenience is given to those who have chosen to become the ascetics.
