Jai Jinendra!

We wish you & your family a very Happy, Healthy and Spiritually rewarding 2016! Hope we all keep walking on the path of love, compassion & forgiveness as showed by Bhagwan Mahavir in 2016 and beyond.

I had the opportunity to meet Jain Leaders in Sydney, Australia and Auckland, New Zealand recently and discussed collaboration efforts across our global Jain Community.

Warm Regards,

 2. SPOTLIGHT
VIEWS OF NON-INDIAN STUDENTS ON JAINISM

"No matter the religion, there is always something that can be learned and applied in your life, and in the current state of the world I can see why the Jains would be encouraging others to practice ahimsa and other Jain values. I have started applying some of these values in my own life such as vegetarianism, more conscious awareness and understanding of others around me in the hopes of becoming a better person. I feel that this is part of the reason that schools require theology courses in their core requirements." – An American Undergraduate.

Jain principles are not only gaining popularity among Jains but other communities too. One of the key factor to this, is teaching Jainism through education.
