The 3 Jewels
The aim of a Jain is to achieve freedom of the soul. The way to achieve this is by living rightly by following the 3 Jewels. The 3 Jewels are 3 ways of life that must be followed. The 3 Jewels are right faith, right knowledge, and right conduct.
Right Faith - Samyak Darshana
Right faith mean hearing, seeing, feeling, and sensing everything right and to steer clear of presumption and superstitions that can get in the way of seeing the truth. Some books call this "right perception," you cannot find this unless a Jain is committed to tell the wrong truths from the right.
Right Knowledge - Samyak Jnana
Right knowledge means having a literal and adequate knowledge of the universe. This includes having knowledge of the 5 substances of the universe, however having this knowledge with the right mental state. A writer says "if our character is flawed and our conscience is not clear, knowledge alone will not help us achieve composure and happiness". This means having a good knowledge of the Jain writings. Some writers say that right knowledge is having a pure soul, which is one that is free from desire and possession attachment. Others say that a person who has right knowledge will be naturally freed from these things and by doing that will achieve peace of mind.
Right Conduct - Samyak Charitra
Right conduct means conducting your life in the right way according to the Jain rules, and to not harm any living thing, or to be attached to possessions. Jains believe that a person who has right faith and right knowledge will be motivated to have right conduct. They also believe that a person without right faith and knowledge will not be able to achieve right conduct. This means there is no use of following the scripture and rituals to impress someone. However not all Jains have this point of view.
