In this essay, Badrinath explains that the Mahabharata and the Jaina view show that the world is not by its nature a dismal place, nor is man condemned to pain and suffering. In personal and collective existence, one can create fields of happy energy if only one understands the true meaning and worth of self-interest and truth.

Keywords:   Mahabharata, Jainism, self-interest, truth
