The Jain diet is wholesome, nutritious and healthy. Jainism has contributed tremendously to the cause of compassion and nonviolence in the world today. This book is another example of how Jains throughout the world continue to practice their compassion for all life.
Deepak Chopra, Author and Founder of Chopra Center in Carlsbad, Californi

Ahimsa, popularly known as nonviolence, is also translated to mean love. It enjoins on people to be imbued with compassion and respect for all. This book is about compassionate eating and nourishing recipes.
Arun Gandhi , Founder and President, M. K. Gandhi Institute for Nonviolence; grandson of Mahatma Gandhi

The Jain tradition laid the deep-rooted scientific and philosophical foundation of a Vegetarian Way of Life. This book takes readers to the core philosophy, the basic science, the fundamental health tenets and the recipes of Jain Food. The book opens many doors and illumines many horizons for humanity everywhere.
L.M. Singhvi , Formerly India’s High Commissioner in the U.K.

Life’s simplest and most profound lessons can be learned from Jain philosophy. This book explains the essential link between Jain philosophy and day-to-day Jain food habits.
Dipak Jain , Dean, Kellogg School of Business

The idea of reverence for all life and hence vegetarian living is at the heart of Jain philosophy. Jainism emphasizes not only knowledge but also practice. The authors have done an invaluable service by writing this wonderful book. I encourage not only Jains but all apostles of Ahimsa to support their heartfelt endeavor. Love and Blessings
