Introduction Vastupal Parikh migrated to Canada in 1960, obtained his Doctorate in Chemistry and as a professor and scientist in Canada he wrote several Chemistry texts. He earned reputation as a teacher and author who could explain complex topics in a simple, easily understandable style. Dr. Parikh’s interest in the modern philosophy of science and the ancient philosophies prompted him to explore various religious systems. He found an interesting blend of faith and logic in the Jain literature, which he later studied for over 25 years. Jainism and the New Spirituality is an outcome of such a study where Dr. Parikh examines Jain Principles and practices through the critical eyes of a scientist. Such critical analysis of an ancient philosophy together with Dr. Parikh’s skill in lucid writing, and his perception of the emerging concepts of spirituality makes this a highly readable and interesting book.
