Jainism is one of the Indian philosophies that does not consider the Vedas divine authority and advocates atheism because a God can't be seen through perception or inference.

The doctrine governing the faith sounds a little like the Eight Fold Path of Buddhism. The main ideas

Jains do believe in the existence of a soul and that it is inherently perfect but is usually bound in an imperfect body because of past karma. The practice of Jainism is intended to perfect the soul again so it can overcome its past karma and, of course, passions of the flesh.

Jain followers typically wear cotton masks to prevent them from swallowing insects or even germs. They consider this part of their dedication to the idea of non-violence. Along with this they usually have their evening meal before the sun sets as a precaution against insects being attracted to lights.
