Welcome Jain Scholars!
Jain Studies are expanding throughout the world and becoming an interest of many scholars. Our goal is to let these scholars know about Jain scholar programs, news and events, and to enable them to be in touch.
JainLink is a portal where you can connect, communicate, and collaborate with other scholars. This is made possible with the Jain Scholar Database, viewable only by “Jain Scholar” members of JainLink. It is an ever growing database of names, contact information, and publication information of Jain Scholars from around the world put into once place.
If you are studying, teaching, or doing research in Jainism, please become a Scholar member of JainLink. Your name will be added to the Jain Scholar Database which will enable you to communicate with other scholars on the database. Scholar members can even write blogs about events and happenings and share them with fellow members. All you have to do is click “register”, select the member type “Jain Scholar”, search our directory to see if your name is already in the Database, then continue to finish up the registration process from there. It will only take a few minutes to become a part of the Jain Scholar community!International Summer School for Jain Studies:
