The scene is that of nihilism, where the materialist denounce the Vedas, priest craft and traditional beliefs, inveighing against all from of magic and superstitions. Then we see Ajeevika Sampradaya (believers in destiny) who are dancing asserting that there is no other world, no heaven or hell, no soul separate from the body! Nehru asserts that both Buddhism and Jainism were breakaways from the vadic religion. Both lay emphasis on non-violence, and built up organisations of Bhikshus (celibate monks). Nehru feel that there was a certain realism and rationalism in their approach.
