I’m a Jain, which means there are certain aspects of my life that I have to be mindful of. One of those aspects is playing video games, as Jainism is a religion that requires practitioners to avoid harming any living creatures. As a result, I’ve had to find ways to play video games without violating my principles. Here’s how:
In this article, I’ll go over some of the things I do to allow me to play video games without violating my principles.
As a Jain, I follow a religion that forbids me from harming or killing living beings. In fact, for us, it’s more than just a rule—it’s a fundamental principle of life. Many people wonder how we can play video games without violating our principles. There are several ways in which you can avoid this kind of situation if you’re playing games in an online setting, but let’s look at some of the options:
- You could talk to your friends about not killing each other during gameplay. This would be an ideal situation because you wouldn’t have to worry about being harmed by another player and they would also be able to respect your request!
- Another option is simply asking them not to kill you when they see your avatar on screen (or even before). If this doesn’t work out well and gets frustrating over time later down the road then maybe try something else such as blocking yourself off with walls or objects that prevent anyone from seeing where exactly “you” are located within game space so no harm comes near either!
The first thing I need to do is make sure that the games I’m playing don’t have any animal-related content.

This might seem obvious, but you’d be surprised how many games have animal-related content in them. There are many animals in video games and it’s easy to miss them when you’re playing a game for hours at a time.
If there are animals in your game, then don’t play it! Simple as that! If there’s even a chance of your character harming an animal, then avoid those games completely!
It’s also important that the game not have any violent content.
It’s also important that the game not have any violent content. Violence is not allowed in Jainism, so if you choose to play a non-violent video game, you should have no trouble finding something to play.
Violence is defined as injuring or killing another person. This can include both accidental and intentional acts of violence like punching someone or shooting them with a gun. It also includes murder, which involves deliberately causing harm to another person (even when they’re trying to hurt you).
Violent video games often involve these types of violence:
- punching/kicking characters (e.g., Street Fighter)
- shooting enemies with guns (e.g., Call of Duty)
- killing monsters with swords/axes/etc (e.g., The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim)
Non-violent games usually don’t include any form of physical fighting at all; there might be some minor conflict between characters but it’s resolved quickly and without serious injury or death. Games like Animal Crossing are good examples of this type because there isn’t any violence at all—you just build houses for animals and collect items from nature so that your town looks nice!
All good so far! But, Jainism is a very pacifistic religion and it’s important I don’t support violence, even in a game.
Jainism is a very pacifistic religion and it’s important I don’t support violence, even in a game. The first thing you should know about Jainism is that it teaches non-violence, or ahimsa (non-violence). Jains believe that killing any living thing—including animals—or eating meat is immoral and wrong. Since my religion forbids me from killing any living thing, I won’t be playing violent video games on my phone or computer.
When it comes to PC games, that’s a little more tricky. My computer uses an optical mouse, so there are no moving parts that I’d have to worry about harming any organisms on.
Optical mice don’t have any moving parts, so there’s nothing for me to worry about harming by using them.
They are much more precise than other types of mice, and they’re often a bit more expensive as well. However, optical mice tend to last longer than other types of mice because there are no moving parts that can wear out over time.
Optical mice also tend to be more comfortable for long periods of use because you don’t need to grip them tightly like you would with a ball mouse or trackball.
Finally, when playing online, it’s important for me to remember that other players in multiplayer games might be playing for fun, but they’re also putting in effort and shouldn’t be mocked or attacked in any way.

You can tell a good player from a bad one by their reactions to losing. Good players take defeats in stride and see them as learning opportunities; bad players blame their teammates, rage quit the match (or leave an unkind message), or try to create drama by saying things like “I’m leaving because you suck.”
It’s not just about how you treat other players—you should also make sure that if someone is being offensive towards you, then don’t take it personally. If someone says something mean about your religion or race because they think it’s funny, don’t let them know thatit hurt your feelings—just calmly report them for breaking the rules of whatever game you’re playing together.
