Compare and contrast the notion of ahimsa as it is understood
Compare and contrast the notion of ahimsa as it is understood in both the Buddhist and the Jain traditions. *Note that in Buddhism, ahimsa is equal to the first precept “not to take life.” It is commonly noted that in Jainism, ahimsa is taken to the extreme. Do you agree with this statement? How does the Buddhist understanding of ahimsa differ from the Jain perspective, and how do both constitute ethical behaviour for their given tradition?
