In Jain philosophy, the doctrine of NAYA (viewpoints), sometimes called the doctrine of relative pluralism. This doctrine is a unique instrument of analysis which asserts that all viewpoints are only partial expressions of the truth. No statement can be absolutely true because it is a view arrived at from only one angle or one particular standpoint. Naya is the theory of partial viewpoints, where naya is a single perspective or viewpoint. Seeking and understanding multiple naya or perspectives can enable us to comprehend and ultimately construct a more complete understanding of truth and reality, part-by-part. According to Jainism, there are seven nayas, where the first four refer to objects and their meaning and the last three refer to names used to define objects and give them identity. Through this monograph, an author has explained the whole concept of Naya in a simple manner.
