Jainism, believed to be the most peaceful of all religions, is said to have originated around 500BC. It’s followers are known as Jains, which connotates the path of victory in crossing over life’s streams of rebirths through an ethical and spiritual life. In Krishna - The Musical, 'Makers Of The River Crossing' is sung by the Jains, about the 24 humans, who through their benevolence and penance, circumvented karmic existence and ceased rebirth, which in turn ensured that their souls attained immortality. The sitar riff is based on the Indian Classical Music Raag - Hamsadhvani.

They are the Makers of the River Crossing
Fading away into the evening sun
They’re leaving, they will return
They’re all alone, unlike anyone
Theirs is not mean, theirs is sullen time
Exonerate from an aching void
They’re isolated, determined minds
Numb is their sense, no passions wild
Severing all their threads in a distinctive quest
Disentangled from all for the interminable rest
Belief is all they’re living, it’s their only power
Reflective in idea, it’ll be their victorious hour
