JAINS REPRESENTED AT THE 2019 MARTIN LUTHER KING MULTI-FAITH COMMEMORATIVE EVENT



Sara Jain of Jain Society of Metropolitan Washington represented the Jain religion at the 2019 Martin Luther King Multi-Faith Commemorative Event organized by the Interfaith Council of Metropolitan Washington on April 7th at the New York Avenue Presbyterian Church. The event was well attended by several dignitaries in the DC region and several faiths.

Sara, representing Jainism, said, "According to the Jain faith, one can achieve inner peace by conquering and denying one’s vices. In order to attain equanimity, however, one must practice nonviolence towards all souls in thought, word, and deed. This creates a ripple effect which will leave an impression of peace and happiness on the whole community. As Martin Luther King Jr. himself once said, “violence never brings permanent peace,” rather, “living together as brothers” was the path to true unity." After her speech, the congregation recited, "In order to create an interconnected and harmonious world, one must first achieve inner peace by practicing nonviolence in all forms."

Such events bring awareness about the Jainism in the broader community. We are proud of our youth for representing and spreading Jainism.
