Why did Buddhism and Jainism become popular among people?
Both Buddhism and Jainism became popular among the people, especially traders and craftsmen. This was because of three reasons:
1. They were easy to practise.
2. Buddha and Mahavira preached in the language commonly spoken by the people. Their teachings were thus easily understood.
3. Both did not believe in the caste system. People from the lower castes were attracted by the idea of social equality.
