 1. PRESIDENT'S MESSAGE

Jai Jinendra!

Pratishtha Mahotsava of tallest statue (108 feet) of our first Thirthankar Bhagwan Rishabhdev is underway in Nasik, India until March 6, 2016.

Jain Community lost an eminent and divine Sant last week - Gurudev Jayantilal Muni. Over 10,000 disciples from all over the world participated in his Samadhi yatra in Petarbar. I was fortunate to meet Gurudev two years ago, which left a lasting impression on me.
